The MLS that had already won the trophy in 2008 and in 2016 took this mention thanks to the fact that it was considered the league with the greatest expansion nationally and internationally. This award is highly prestigious for the league if you take into account that it faces leagues such as the NBA, NFL or WNBA among others. In addition, many members of the league were nominated in different awards.

The constant growth of the league is remarkable, and the recent confirmation of 30 teams for the following MLS season was one of the key points to win the award of the Sport Business Awards. More and more people in the United States are leaning towards soccer, with the 2019 season being the one with fan records.

Soccer club values have come to an abrupt end and have attracted many businessmen to invest in the sport. A clear example is David Beckham that owns the Inter Miami. The MLS has managed to be seen as a league where it is reliable to invest money, and the best thing is that it is constantly growing.

Finally, the great moment of American soccer players in the world has generated a greater attraction in the local league as it is where the future stars come from who will later play in teams such as FC Barcelona, Liverpool or Bayern Munich. In turn, internationally known players who no longer have a place in the best teams in Europe decide to go to play in MLS, as some time ago Ibrahimovich, Rooney or nowadays Higuain.
