The USL and the new NASL have reached an agreement for the 2010 season that will let them operate as a single Division 2 league under the umbrella of U.S. Soccer.

The USL Conference will be made up of teams from Austin, Minnesota, Portland, Puerto Rico, Rochester and Tampa Bay. The NASL Conference will consist of teams from Baltimore, Carolina, Miami, Montreal, St. Louis and Vancouver.

Here’s a full release.

    Hmmm. I wonder if there’s a way we could force our division two teams to travel more…. :)

    Totally unrelated …

    Everton and Arsenal are at halftime at the Emirates, where Landon Donovan is making his English Premier League debut for the Blues. His corner found Leon Osman, who headed in for the opening goal. Arsenal equalized later in the first half, but Everton is giving them a good run for it.

    Donovan has otherwise had a mostly quiet game although when he’s gotten the ball he’s done good things with it. The commentators are talking favorably about him, and the Arsenal supporters seem to be booing him when he gets the ball. (I say ‘seem to be’ because I’m watching on some sketchy feeds and the audio comes and goes from deep somewhere at the bottom of a well.)

    He is playing wide on the right in midfield.

    The boos are no doubt because he’s a pop-off, and they know they’re going to face the US first in the World Cup. It will be interesting to see if he gains any support through his play.
    Patrick Viera just signed a 6-month contract with Man City, with a 1-year option ….
