The MLS All-Star Game is on Thursday in San Jose. There’s a very good chance we will hear some league news this week, with all of the top brass from MLS on hand. It’s unknown if we will hear Minnesota news, if the expansion draft will happen, future expansion, or any other pertinent topics. It is possible though...

One place this news might drop is in this morning’s Facebook Live Q&A with MLS commissioner Don Garber. It starts at 11:30 a.m. this morning and Dirty South Soccer will let you know if any Atlanta United related nuggets are revealed.
