Rivalries in sports are nothing new. They are a fun way for one city to showcase its superiority over their neighbor, in a bonafide, inarguable result on the scoreboard. While still a relatively new league, MLS has some that predate its existence. Others are still in the nascent stages, but still brimming with intensity. It was my pleasure to highlight three of the biggest rivalries in the league from past to present.

This project was created for Heineken Rivalry Week with two versions of each film: one long form cut (shown above) lives on the MLS YouTube page, while a shorter “trailer” version was broadcast on ESPN.
