(AP) -- The new advertising campaign for Major League Soccer proclaims: "For Club And Country."
Because nothing stirs passionate soccer fans - and even the sport's casual onlookers - quite like the World Cup, the premier U.S. league is hoping to draw on the excitement surrounding the big event this summer.
"It's a perfect theme for our march to Brazil," Commissioner Don Garber said. "It's not just about American players wrapping themselves in their flags, it's Tim Cahill and Robbie Keane wrapping themselves in their country's flags. It's a big connection between our clubs and the national teams."
