The Football Show We Need

NFP is must-listen content for any fans of the beautiful game in Canada. The hosts are knowledgeable and engaging, the coverage of multiple facets of the domestic and international game is truly impressive, and — most importantly — the show is club-agnostic. No Toronto love-fests masquerading as national content here!

Great Canadian football podcast

Great show and insite that I couldn’t find with MSM. It feeds my rekindled interest with Canadian football. Look forward to future episodes.
