MLS named 2008 League of the Year

Major League Soccer is the best league ever (this year) according to SportsBusiness.

MLS was chosen from five nominees for Professional Sports League of the Year including, in alphabetical order, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, National Basketball Association, National Football League and the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour.

Soccer wins by not already being established. Not a whole lot of room for growth in the NBA, MLB, and NFL when you are already huge. But over the women's pro tennis tour? Hello? Sony Ericsson WTA marketing department, you are doing it wrong! They're hot, athletic women, some of whom with exotic accents! Sell it!

 

Here are some other awards handed out by the biz rag.

Athletic Director of the Year - Ron Wellman, Wake Forest University
Professional Sports Team of the Year - Boston Red Sox
Professional Sports League of the Year - Major League Soccer
