  • 2011 MLS Cup, Home Depot Center

I just wrote up a little piece on how MLS Cup is going back to LA for SBnation.com. Yeah, I can’t say I’m overly thrilled with this news.

While I like the HDC as a venue and a host for MLS Cup, I don’t like the start time for the game. A 9pm ET start isn’t ideal in any way for the league’s showcase game. All MLS can do here is pray the NFL lockout continues on and goes through November here.

What do you make of the Home Depot Center hosting the MLS Cup again here?

  • I still get why they don’t do MLS Cup on Saturday, like the overwhelming majority of regular season games. Plus, is it better to go against NFL then College Football? Whats the gain here?
