  Major League Soccer to sell ad space on jerseys   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
Major League Soccer doesn't have the talent, tradition or TV ratings of more storied American sports leagues.
A few years ago, Major League Baseball toyed with the idea of selling sponsorships on jersey sleeves, and MLB and the National Football League already allow apparel makers such as Reebok and Majestic to display their logos on team uniforms.
In soccer, major European teams didn't begin to sell jersey space until the late 1970s, and before 1985, the Union of European Football Associations didn't allow clubs to wear sponsored uniforms during major competitions like the UEFA Cup.

Major League Soccer (MLS) is the top soccer league in the United States in the American Soccer Pyramid.
MLS was formed on December 17, 1993, in fulfillment of U.S. Soccer's promise to FIFA to establish a "Division One" professional football (soccer) league in exchange for the staging of the FIFA World Cup USA 1994 in the United States.
However this is a considerable expense to the league, and to provide better facilities as well as to control revenue for the stadium, a major goal of MLS management is to build its own stadiums, which are often called "soccer-specific stadiums".

The mercurial, publicity-shy Anschutz controlled six franchises in the 10-team league, a situation unheard of in any other sports enterprise purporting to be a big-time entity.
The moves are nothing short of remarkable for a league that in the last three years admitted to more than $250 million in operating losses, folded two troubled franchises and is still struggling to establish a solid television foothold.
That fan base will never rival the NFL or Major League Baseball, but it is there and, despite a 6 percent drop in regular-season attendance this year, a further drastic fall is not likely.
