MLS To Explore Resurrecting Failed Franchises For Winter Indoor League

NEW YORK - Major League Soccer, today, announced that they were exploring resurrecting the failed franchises that formerly existed in the league for a winter indoor 5v5 league.

A rivalry renewed!

A rivalry renewed!

"Who doesn't want to see Chivas USA, the Miami Fusion, the Tampa Bay Mutiny, the Miami Beckham FCs, the New York/New Jersey Metrostars, the Dallas Burn, the Kansas City Wiz, Maccabi Los Angeles and the San Jose Clash take each other on in an indoor league that takes place entirely indoors in venues like the Izod Center and the Amway Center for a three month season during the winter of 2017/2018," stated president of Major League Soccer Mark Abbot. 

"We are hoping that the ability to see all these former teams take each other on will bring out the waive of nostalgia that soccer fans love to bathe in, at all times."

According to insider sources, Major League Soccer executives were insistent that there was, "still some life left in these old brands," as they maintained a stranglehold on any trademark for the defunct teams of the past.

"With all of this change and branding we figured we could get some more money by setting up a clash of the former titans. Just think about watching the Fusion walk out to a laser light show and Gloria Estefan's Rhythm Is Gonna Get You. It's going to be like a prize fight! The Dallas Burn can walk out to Achy Breaky Heart! We can wring these towel's dry, yet!"

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the Miami Beckham FC's are unable to field a team, or find a venue and pull out of the winter league.
