Catching Up With Stuart Crystal, Vice-President of Consumer Products for Major League Soccer
The Major League Soccer season got underway this spring with the addition of the Montreal Impact. This comes on the heels of last year’s league additions of the Portland Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps. With each new team that’s added, soccer grows in popularity across the U.S. This low-cost, family-friendly sport is attracting crowds to new stadiums. These fans are looking for consumer products to purchase. Stuart Crystal, vice-president of consumer products for Major League Soccer, explains the growing fan base and the growing licensing program.
