They have already announced the fixtures for the first couple of weeks of the season. The rest will be released in a few weeks, I think.

Yes, MLS is weird.

Is it actually some kind of English county league, or something? A reserve league, maybe? For Pete's sake, honestly.

The idea is, I think, to draw more attention by doing it in two stages. The offseason is quite long, and MLS gets little publicity (unless it's about Beckham), so they do what they can.

Seems odd, but ok. I want to know the August fixtures.

Almost, and maybe - there's a family wedding taking place sometime, in Toronto. I probably can't afford it, but I thought it might be a chance to take in a game at the BMO Field.

Would be a good place to see an MLS match, atmosphere-wise. The stadium isn't great, but the location's nice.

The football will be terrible, though, if Mo Johnston's still in charge at TFC.

I watch semi-pro football every week, though. It'd be fine.

SocScrim, I can enlighten you about the Portuguese population of Newark, but I ain't enlightening shit about the RedBallz because they can burn in hell.

But if you have google earth, 40˚44'09.21N 74˚09'28.70W is the site of the new stadium. That whole abandoned area is technically in Harrison (another great soccer community with numerous state titles,) but it's right across the river from the Ironbound.

Drag your mouse downwards across the river, and you'll see a triangle of streets that end at Newark Penn Station. That's the Ironbound, the highest concentration of Portuguese in the USA other than Boston (also quite Brasilian these days as well.) They would probably go nuts for Figo.

North of that is the new Devils arena.

One reason the full season fixtures take so long to determine is that many teams share their stadiums with other pro (or, in KC's case this year, minor league) sports teams, and tend to have second choice of times. Some teams will need to wait until all other fixures are determined before they can shoe-horn the MLS fixtures around gridiron, baseball, etc.

do all your sports take ages to sort their fixtures out, then?

Not really. But the key drivers here have different seasons. Gridiron is Late August-January, Baseball is late March-October/Early November, and MLS is March-November.

Baseball Schedules for 2008 were released in December. But the Gridiron schedules won't be out for awhile, since the current season is still going (in the playoffs at this point).

Hey! No cracks. You shall have the finest seat in section 221 and you'll enjoy it.

And anyway, MLS is more League One than semi-pro.

Talk about damning with faint praise.
