MLS Soccer Tickets

The popularity of MLS soccer has been growing in recent years. The expansion of the league into new markets, the construction of new stadiums and training facilities, and an influx of international star players have raised the league’s profile and brought in new fans. It’s no secret that soccer is the most popular sport in the world by a wide margin, and the MLS has worked steadily to bring some of that rabid fandom to the United States.

The league underwent its first growth phase in 2005-2014, expanding from 10 to 19 teams. The MLS added Real Salt Lake, Toronto FC, Seattle Sounders, Houston Dynamo FC, Portland Timbers, Philadelphia Union, and others, constructing new stadiums and facilities across the continent.

In the last few years, expansion teams like Miami CF, FC Cincinnati, Nashville SC, Austin FC, and Charlotte FC have joined popular league originals like Columbus Crew, D.C. United, New England Revolution, LA Galaxy, FC Dallas, and Colorado Rapids, bringing the number of teams in Major League Soccer to 28. With clubs across the United States and Canada, each playing 34 regular season games a year, there are plenty of chances for soccer fans to grab a seat at the stadium and see their favorite teams and players.

Where and When to Buy MLS Soccer Tickets

While single-match and season ticket prices are less expensive than sports like basketball and football, as the popularity of MLS soccer continues to grow, tickets can become more expensive and harder to find. It can be hard for fans to figure out the best time to buy MLS tickets to get the lowest price. When shopping for tickets on the resale market, research shows that waiting until a few days before the game will yield the best price. In fact, the advancement of ticket technology now allows soccer fans to purchase tickets right up until gametime and simply scan their tickets at the gate with their mobile device to gain admission.

When it comes to where to buy tickets, Event Tickets Center is the place to go. ETC has all the MLS preseason tickets, regular season tickets, and playoff tickets fans need, all the way up to the MLS Cup. In addition to MLS games, ETC also has tickets to soccer games in other leagues. Second-tier divisions like the USL and NISA offer competitive alternatives to the MLS, and feature many up-and-coming players and teams. MLS teams can also qualify for international competition in the Confederation of North, Central America, and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) and contribute players to the United States Men’s National Soccer Team (USMNT) to compete in the World Cup. No matter what league, team, or tournament you want to see, Event Tickets Center has the tickets you need.

MLS Soccer History and Players

Major League Soccer was formed in 1996 following an explosion of popularity from the 1994 World Cup hosted in the United States. While not as prestigious as some European leagues, such as England’s Premier League, the MLS has grown steadily in popularity. It has been able to attract world-renowned international players, such as David Beckham, Karol Swiderski, Jeremy Ebobisse, Raul Ruidiaz, and Sebastian Driussi, which has increased the league’s popularity worldwide and given Major League Soccer the opportunity to continue to expand.
