Great show covering soccer up north!!

I’ve never been to Canada, but I’ve enjoyed watching the growth of the beautiful game in the country from afar. I’m glad to have found this podcast. Hosts have great chemistry and are funny. Production on the show is top notch. New fan!

Far from home

As a Canadian living abroad, it can be difficult to get some local news and sports thanks to geoblocking. As a soccer fan I’m excited for the new Canadian Premier League and this podcast has allowed me to stay easily connected to the rumoUrs and interviews of people connected to the clubs and league. Cheers.
