Goal of this page is to keep all of my groundhopping posts in one place. This includes places I’ve been, upcoming trips and potential trips for fans.

My goals are to see a game in every MLS city and see a soccer game in the lower 48 states and the District of Columbia.

Building on the efforts of some amazing soccer fans, I have created the following map, which has almost every team in the United States and Canada. I am always updating it with expansion teams and those teams that folded/changed leagues/gone on hiatus in the lower leagues. I have also added a layer of all of the venues I have been to over the last 25 years or so. 

Let me know where you have been in the US and Canada. Best venue? Worst venue? Give me a shout!
