Over the next few days, you may see Ivan Gazidis' name pop up often around the news. The MLS Deputy Commissioner will be on a conference call later today to the media and we'll have the opportunity to ask him questions regarding, well, anything and everything.
The press release mentions the following topics:
- New player acquisitions, the Designated Player rule
- International competition - SuperLiga, CONCACAF Champions Cup, Champions League
- 2008 MLS schedule
- Roster rules
- Youth development
I imagine those are the things most of us would be interested in talking to him about. I know that I'll be writing stories on many of those issues in the coming weeks and probably will hit the second one hard at some time during the summer.
I'll keep you guys posted if anything interesting comes up. The call is supposed to start at 11 am PT.
