Yeah lots of people have heard of it but anybody that enjoys the game would rather watch a different league IMO.

Like at home I can watch all the big leagues, if I want to watch some minnow leagues i'll watch the A-League, I mean we've got some name value. Del Piero just signed with us.
Shit I thought Del Piero retired after Juvy. Good to see him away from them anyways, with Juvy and Celtic playing in the Champions League I'm glad we don't have him going up against us

But I know a lot of people who will watch MLS if it's on ESPN/Sky Sports. People like to be total fans of football. The Italian league is very unwatched here, mainly because it's the worst league in the world for everything other than skill. When Beckham moved to LA Galaxy the amount of people wearing those strips were huge. Cross that with the Irish (where I live) legend Robbie Keane joining them, theres a fair few who will flick onto their games.
