Pittsburgh is the location of the newest SSS in the US. Here’s a fancy video showing off the renderings of the site. If you are a super soccer nerd (SSN), here’s your construction cam. Don’t worry, when the Timbers were renovating, I watched their live cam often. I’m a complete self identifying SSN.
Orlando sent it’s mayor and the owner of Orlando City to visit and tour Livestrong Park to get ideas for a SSS being sought for MLS.
Phoenix FC have announced their new stadium. Sort of. Not really.
The Tampa Bay Rowdies have developed new plans for a reconfigured layout at Al Lang Stadium for the next 4 years.
Minnesota Stars just clinched a playoff spot with a 4-0 win over PRI.
I just found out that the Puerto Rico Islanders are basically the Puerto Rico National team.
San Antonio’s Scorpions are building a new SSS stadium with 4 phases of upgrades possible. Toyota has already bought the Naming rights. Now to tug at the heart strings, the SA Scorpions are an extension of Morgan’s Wonderland, a theme park designed for Special Needs children. For a lower division team, their suites are amazing. They are better than the suites at Portland’s Jeld Wen Field.
This election season comes down to two big names. One the name we’re used to. We know it. It knows us. Then there’s the challenger. A new name that really isn’t that new. It’s just been awhile. Early voting has started and is encouraged. The final results will be tallied on the same day as the Presidential election, Nov. 6. The real election is between two names the Atlanta Silverbacks have allowed the fans to vote for.

KickTV visits Portland
coinciding with both the Portland/Seattle rivalry game and K&S film festival
. I know it’s not Lower Division, but I live in Portland and to not mention the biggest game yet for the city would seem, strange.
