Cobi thanks benefactors

Cobi's right, the Home Depot Center really raised the standard for soccer stadiums in this country. Few other owners would have had the faith it took to invest so much. Since then, others have followed, and the look of Major League Soccer went up a level.

Execs like Tim Leiweke have been responsible for putting together the big deals of the league, like the David Beckham signing.

Cobi acknowledged that.

"I’d like to thank Phil and Nancy Anschutz for being the people that they are and having their love for soccer and supporting this game so much. Through them, Tim Leiweke and AEG and everything they’ve done for this sport, getting great stadiums like this and putting soccer on the map in this country and throughout the whole world."
