Happy Thursday, everyone. There was a lot of MLS action as well as some other soccer action and news, so let’s start with the Black-and-Red up in Philly:
D.C. United went up to play the Philadelphia Union, and they leave Chester with a scoreless draw and a point. DCU played well in my opinion, and it was a deserved result at what has been a super difficult place for us to play. Check out the highlights!
On the other side, Loudoun United fell to New Mexico United at home, 3-1. Here are the highlights from that match.
Ugh, I hated this match yesterday, but credit to Manchester City. They came to play and will move onto the Champions League Final on June 10th against Inter Milan.

Leonardo Bonucci is a legend, and he will have his final season next year. The Italian centerback has played 19 seasons for 8 clubs and has 120 caps for the national team.
The 2026 World Cup brand launch was last night in LA, and the stream for this was super painful to watch. However, we have a new brand logo for the tournament:
Ivan Toney has been suspended for 8 months for betting violations, and has also been fined. It’s a harsh penalty considering that clubs do a ton with betting companies.
The end of an era at Liverpool, as 4 players who have helped the club get to the level they are right now will leave during the summer transfer window.
Finally, some good news for players outside of NWSL for being released for the Women’s World Cup. Players whose domestic seasons have been completed can be released from June 23-29 to join their national teams. That gives them 4 weeks instead of the window opening just 10 days before the opening match.
That’s it for today, enjoy the beautiful weather!
