The 2015 MLS regular season kicks off tonight, with Crew SC slated to play the Houston Dynamo tomorrow evening at BBVA Stadium at 8:30 p.m. ET. Prior to tomorrow’s season opening contest, here are some things to check out.
MLSsoccer.com has posted staff picks for the Landon Donovan MVP Award, Defender of the Year, Goalkeeper of the Year, Breakout Player of the Year and a projected 24 Under 24 ranking. Each of these categories features a tie to a current Crew SC player.
Sports Illustrated features a 2015 season preview, including expert picks on MLS Cup, MVP and more. While at Sports Illustrated, make sure to look at “All-time MLS honors” where the staff examines some of the best moments in League history. Here’s a snippet from Grant Wahl on what he feels is the best uniform in 20 seasons: “Columbus Crew [SC’s] new yellow shirt. I love everything about this: The classic look, the new logo, the subtle yellow-on-yellow pattern and the fact that you know who’s playing the second you see this color. Fantastic.”
If you are interested in Preseason Power Rankings, ESPN FC and SBI Soccer have released their takes on which teams rank where.
