The end of the brexit topic got me thinking about the members of the YA community, and wondering how many areas of the country/world we occupy. So go on, tell us where you're from! I'm born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. And pretty damn proud of this city.

I am born and raised in the sun city, El Paso, TX. I grew up watching and playing anything sports related. Soccer and running are my two best sports. I follow the Montreal Impact because I saw many of their games, before they made the jump to MLS, while I worked there five years. Love Liverpool of EPL and follow any teams that have Yanks playing for them.

Born in Ohio, raised in Michigan, but have been living in Arizona for the past 20 yrs. When MLS started quickly became a fan of DC United, and have been a supporter ever since. I've also been a fan of Portland since they came into the league. Usually will support any European clubs who employ Americans...but clubs like Liverpool & Fulham hold a special place for me.

Chicago, live in Colorado now. The Fire are a joke but I don't really go for rooting for the Rapids. Jones is a beast in person...

Abilene, tx. No real favorite team other than the US. Usually try to watch teams that have our players. I do have severe dislike for teams though.

Born in India, now a US citizen living in Dallas area for past 23 years... Like Munns, Watch games with US players are in, so, I end up watching damn Sunderland too many times.
India stinks in Soccer, US u16 BNT can beat India Mens' team.

I'm from Boston. Born and bred. Moved to Atlanta in 2009. Been here since. Didn't really get into MLS until I moved. Still watch as many Revs games as I can though. Hopefully AUFC will be a nice change of pace. Fan of Manchester United too.

Shreveport, Louisiana here. Much like I said before were pretty much East Texas. We're an hour and a half east from where Jose Francisco Torres grew up and an hour and a half north east of the legendary Nacagdoches born product Clint Dempsey.
*Side note my wife scored her first ever goal tonight in her first season of indoor. A beatiful one touch low curler to the far post. Our son just turned one and is loving the game.*
We just got an NPSL team here coached by a Brit so it's not super attractive soccer but it's something to do. I support any team that has a yank on it

Durham North Carolina best known for having Duke university. Didnt attend duke university family works there but have been to a number of duke basketball games. In terms of atmosphere duke basketball is pretty crazy especially against UNC. Came back to durham after college and stayed ever since. I do have a number of friends who live in DC area skangles we could meet up if I am visiting the area. In terms of soccer Carolina Railhawks are my local team. MLS is SKC since I have a large number of relatives in the kansas city area and have enjoyed a couple games there.
