Covid may have brought a casualty off the field.

The league is still commitment to Sacramento but it's going to be an uphill climb for a smaller market that got leapfrogged by many other places with the rising fees along the way.

Looks like the "2020" Voyageurs Cup will be March 20th.

MLS Fans, question

I was an early fan back upon the league's opening season in 1996 and stayed until about 2004 for DC United before I left the Washington DC area.

Now in 2021 there are 27 teams even after all the failures, and well I am shocked at its growth.

But how in the world are they able to play this oncoming season without fans at the venues? Or are there limited fans?

Are the owners bankrolling the season at a loss? Does the TV contract make up for much?
