The first international break of our 2019 season is upon us, but as you know, the content has no days off. This week is MLS heavy, as some of the newer squads experience home openers, and the boundaries of style are being pushed forward, we proudly present a new edition of Trending.
From Staircase To Stage
Last week, adidas and MLS collaborated for a fashion show that repurposed and reimagined kits. Shout out to Corey Stokes of Highsnobiety for putting the NYCFC shirt on front street and making us look good!
Allianz Field is the new home of Minnesota United FC. Recently the club’s new grounds were unveiled featuring a ton of nice touches and nods to their old park. Will you be there on April 13 with NYCFC reppin’ the Boys In Blue?
Shout out to FC Cincinnati, who had their MLS home-opener this weekend against Portland. The club’s supporters made the march to a sold-out Nippert Stadium. They’ll be in the Bronx in June, but we can’t wait to visit Ohio in September!
Cause For Celebration
Keeping it in the Queen City, FC Cincinnati’s Kendall Waston scored the club's first-ever MLS home goal. Taking his cue from a famous TV Dad, Watson took his son’s advice and got busy during his celebration. Listen to the kids.
Down Under, lead referee Jarred Gillett and his team get mic’d up for Fox Sports during an A-League match, providing insight into decisions and events in the game that are rarely seen. Refs are people too!
Silver Screen Dreams
American Futbol is a film documenting the beautiful game all over South America. We are taken all over the continent to get a perspective on the sport that is rarely seen. The film is available for download now, so check that out ASAP!
