Looking Back at MLS

MLS 20 Years Ago…

Laurie Calloway, Palm Beach Soccer Academy’s director of coaching, served as one of the coaches in the very first Major League Soccer game. He is one of the pioneering figures interviewed in this ESPN article about the landmark event in U.S. soccer history.

” I’ve been asked what I needed to do to psych the team up. I didn’t need to psych the team up for something like that. It’s like being in the playoffs or in a championship game, because it was very important to all of us. Sometimes in the middle of the season, after a big win, teams can fall flat psychologically. I never had that problem with that first game. If anything, I was trying to calm them down a little bit rather than psych them up. It was an exciting time, stepping out onto that field and seeing 31,000 people there.”

– Laurie Calloway, San Jose Clash manager (1996-97)
