MLS To Honor 9/11's 10th Anniversary In Variety Of Ways

Ten years after 9/11 forced MLS to cancel the final week of its regular season, the league will be honoring the 10th anniversary of the national tragedy in a variety of ways. All games will include a 30-second moment of silence prior to the singing of the national anthem, all players will wear commemorative armbands bearing the official 9/11 Memorial and a 9/11 PSA will run in all stadiums and during broadcasts.

In addition to the league-wide actions, every game will include its own recognition. Among the highlights:

 

  • The Sounders will hand out 35,000 miniature U.S. flags that are to be raised during the 9th and 11th minutes
  • The Galaxy are donating part of ticket sales to the FDNY Widows and Orphans Foundation
  • The Sons of Ben will raise their scarves during the 9th and 11th minutes
  • The Revolution have given 3,500 tickets to Armed Services
  • Earthquakes goalkeeper Jon Busch has donated gear to be auctioned with proceeds going to the Navy SEAL Foundation
  • Chivas USA is giving free admission to all military personnel, firefighters, police, FMTs, paramedics and families with valid ID
