Covering the Coverage: MLS Cup Edition

This is our last post before the Cup Final on Saturday, so with the media starting to descend on Los Angeles, now is a good time to look at how some of major outlets are covering the upcoming match.  Before looking at game coverage, the first link is to a must read of Grant Wahl’s annual chat with Commissioner Garber.  For fans of the business of soccer in the United States, the piece is a must read.

The Dynamo page on the Chron.com has an array of features on the Dynamo and the upcoming match.

The Sports page of the Los Angeles Times continues to lack a Galaxy specific (of soccer specific) link across the masthead.   The soccer page does have a few stories about the upcoming match, Beckham’s retirement and Donovan’s possible departure.

Although you have to make your way to the MLS Page, ESPN.com has a fair amount of coverage about the league and upcoming match.

USA Today started Thursday with Chris Wondolowski’s MVP win and the soccer page of the online version of the paper includes a number of articles about the league, the players and the upcoming match.

Not surprisingly, NBC Sports’ page is full of features and news stories about the match.

Finally, TSN’s webpage is full of articles about the game, the players and the state of the league.

We’ll be back on Monday with a business blog of the game.   Enjoy the big match!
