One of Hollywood's biggest stars is making sure MLS fans are prepared for the league's regular season.
Matthew McConaughey helped unveil the newest version of the league's "Our Soccer" campaign through an intense video that explains the MLS' 25 year history in 25 seconds. McConaughey has been heavily involved with the MLS in recent years and is a co-owner of Austin FC, the league's latest expansion club that's set to debut in 2021. Per the MLS' website, the video celebrates the "growth of the soccer movement" and highlights it as the "league for a new North America."

MLS vice president of brand and integrated marketing David Bruce had this to say in a statement on it:
“‘25 Years in 25 Seconds’ shows the rhythm of a league set against the journey of the first 25 years. It celebrates and embraces the openness, diversity, culture, and the fans that are at the core of our league. It reminds us why sport can be so important in our lives."
The video is set to air on ESPN during the 'MLS is Back' tournament's final on August 11, and will also be aired on TSN. If this didn't get you fired up well, you should probably give it another watch!
