MLS Cheapens Soccer Viewing Experience By Playing Games On Gridiron Lines [PHOTOS]

If Major League Soccer wants to be taken seriously, it needs to come up with a better solution than playing high-profile playoff games on fields featuring gridiron lines.

By playing games like these on fields that are prioritized for American football, it cheapens the MLS game, and makes TV viewers feel like they’re watching a second-class sport.

Tonight’s double-header of New England against Sporting Kansas, followed by Seattle-Portland were both played on fields for NFL teams.

MLS has been in business for more than 17 years. Surely by now they could have come up with a solution of how to resolve this eyesore.

The photos below show the field for New England’s home match, while the above photo is from Seattle-Portland.
