Like many major leagues around the world, 2020 was a drastically different sports landscape than what we’ve all become accustomed to over the years. Major League Soccer was no different. The league got going for barely two weeks before being forced to shut down due to COVID-19, and then when MLS was able to resume it was in a bubble at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
We’re slowly returning to life as we knew it prior to COVID-19, and thankfully MLS is about to welcome back fans in every market in 2021. It’s great timing too because there’s plenty to be excited about when the season kicks off in two weeks.
A new club is debuting down in Texas with the long-awaited arrival of Austin FC. Several teams are unveiling their new home venues to play in this season, including FC Cincinnati’s beautiful West End Stadium.
And on top of all that we have incredible play on the field with a number of familiar places heading to new cities for the 2021 campaign.
Let’s take a look at the five most hyped MLS teams we’re ready to watch this season.
