If you're ready for the start of the 2021 Major League Soccer season, so is the USA TODAY Network.
Join The Enquirer's Pat Brennan along with other MLS beat writers at noon Thursday for a live event on Twitter Spaces, a new audio-only room and available in the app.
Thursday's conversation will allow listeners to interact with:
- Pat Brennan, The Enquirer's FC Cincinnati writer.
- Drake Hills, The Tennessean's Nashville SC beat writer.
- Jacob Myers, The Columbus Dispatch's Columbus Crew SC writer.
- Mike Craven, The Austin Statesman's Austin FC.
- Jaime Cardenas, of Gannett and former Chivas USA beat writer.
Bring your questions and thoughts about the "Hell Is Real" Derby, the league's new expansion team in Texas and Nashville, FC Cincinnati's biggest rival that it hasn't ever faced in MLS action.

What to know about Twitter Spaces
How to get started
Twitter Spaces is available on the iOS and Android version of the Twitter app. Be sure to download the most recent update in the App Store.
When you open the Twitter app, you will see Spaces in progress at the top of your Twitter feed. They will be located in the same spot where you find Fleets. You'll know the difference between a Fleet and Space because Spaces have a purple ring.
Do people have to know if I join a Space? Can I remain anonymous?
Similar to anywhere else on Twitter, people will see your name and bio when you join a Space.
How many people can listen?
There is no limit on the number of listeners.
How can you engage or ask questions?
You can react with emojis during the conversation to offer feedback. And only the speakers will be heard, but you can request to speak.
