Major League Soccer announced that it will increase the number of games per team next season from 30 to 34.  The increase makes it possible for the league, which will add teams in Portland and Vancouver, to continue to play a balanced schedule, with all clubs playing one another once at home and once away during the regular season.  [September 14]

Comment: A league that has no promotion/relegation system to keep things interesting at the bottom of the standings and no prestigious continental tournament to keep things interesting among the middling clubs now gives us dozens and dozens of additional regular-season matches that no one needs to watch.  Thanks to over-expansion, MLS has painted itself into a corner that the NASL would find familiar.
