The Growth of Major League Soccer: Commentary, Analysis & Explanations from the Literature

Research output: Other contribution


As regular readers of this website might be aware, a significant strand of our research has been concerned with the FIFA World Cup, in particular aspects of its administration and management in recent(ish) history. Our 2018 paper ‘Opportunities for all the Team…’ published within The International Journal of the History of Sport (Gillett and Tennent, 2018) (and recently re-published as a chapter within a book: Tennent and Gillett, 2020) examined the 1966 and also the 1994 editions of the FIFA World Cup, and it is the latter which is the starting point for this article, which critically examines one sporting legacy of the event: Major League Soccer.
