    Dear MLS and A-League Supporters,

    Hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the end of the MLS regular season. With all eyes on this weekend's final regular season games, it is only fitting we begin to look ahead towards the pinnacle of our season…MLS Cup 2003. Contained within you will find all pertinent information relating to MLS Cup, Supporters Summit and annual Supporters Bash.

    Supporters Shield…Congratulations to the Chicago Fire for wining the 2003 MLS Supporters Shield! After polling a sampling of representatives from the respective supporter groups, it has been decided to award the Supporters Shield during the first Fire home playoff game on November 9 (vs. at the Gala Awards Ceremony). Not only will the Chicago Fire’s accomplishments be symbolically recognized in front of their fans, there may prove to be an opportunity to create local print and/or TV media exposure.

    MLS Supporters Summit...Open to all MLS fans, this annual event is hosted by the local Supporter group prior to MLS Cup. Supporter group leaders, members and the soccer community alike are encouraged to attend and participate.
