MLS: You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

The North American Soccer Almanac, an impressive introspective on MLS history, continues to drop fascinating content chronicling the game’s growth in America and America’s hat. The year 1996 may seem like eons ago, but Major League Soccer has since scaled heights thought impossible back then. Every facet of the game is immensely more professional. Perhaps nothing signifies this professional polish more than each team’s current branding as the league has evolved from awkward nouns and intransitive verbs to more traditional club names and from day-glo horror shirts to today’s mostly pleasing looks.

The Almanac just released this look back at some of the looks teams have rocked since the league’s birth. I think you’ll agree that the contrast with today is striking.
