Interleague games pitting MLS reserve teams against USL PRO teams will be available online through USL Live, the online video destination USL launched in 2007.
 
More than half of the 2013 interleague games will be available on USL Live, as well as all USL PRO matches.

Twelve USL PRO teams will play two games each against MLS Reserve League competition in 2013. In addition, four MLS clubs are loaning players to USL PRO clubs as part of affiliation agreements. Other MLS players have moved to USL PRO as part of individual loan deals.

Additional games will be available on USL Live throughout the season, including international friendlies and select Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup matches.

CARDS DO SOCCER. Baseball's St. Louis Cardinals are getting into the soccer business. They'll be hosting an international match between English Premier League clubs  Manchester City and Chelsea May 23 at Busch Stadium.

The game, which will follow the conclusion of the EPL season, will be the first professional, non-baseball sporting event hosted at the new Busch Stadium.

A special pre-sale was held April 1 for Cardinals season-ticket holders.

“We are honored to host this historic match,” said Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III in a statement. “This is a wonderful opportunity for St. Louisans to see some of the best soccer players in the world. We also look forward to showcasing the versatility of Busch Stadium as a multi-use sports venue.”

The game is being promoted by Relevent Sports.

MEDIA POSITION. OneWorldSports.com has posted a job opening for a senior editor position. ONE World Sports is an English-language sports network that is the dominant media rights-holder in Asia.
