As MLS begins its 22nd season, the popularity of the league is soaring as record crowds are attending games and 12 cities are vying to secure one of the next four expansion teams. A discussion between two men who have been conversing for nearly 20 years. MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Sports Illustrated senior writer, FOX Sports reporter and New York Times best-selling author Grant Wahl will discuss the topics of the day and the state of the league. Topics will include expansion, the changing media landscape, Video Assistant Referee (VAR), supporter culture and if the U.S. will bid to host a future World Cup. The session will conclude with an opportunity to ask Don and Grant questions.
