Following the two games Real just played here in the US, Real will host and MLS XI at the Bernabeu on Aug 23.
Too bad this match is a mid-week encounter is right in the middle of the regular season and most players will play a Saturday game before flying to Madrid and return for a game the following weekend.
What’s more important Mr. Garber, these friendly’s or the regular season? I thought you said you were looking at ways to make the regular season more meaningful when you were asked about MLS moving to a single table. If this isn’t proof that the league doesn’t consider the regular season (beyond the attendance) important, what will.
Yet you still wonder why so many fans of the sport prefer to watch other leagues on TV rather than attend matches their local team is playing. Why can’t you schedule things things better? Once again, the fans are screwed by the leagues greed.
