In this inaugural episode of The Beautiful Game we have the pleasure of chatting with Greg Lalas, Editor-in-Chief of MLS Digital. Greg has worked extensively in soccer – at Goal.com, at ExtraTime Radio, and also played a couple seasons in MLS himself. He’s also the force behind the annual Kicking & Screening Soccer Film Festival, now in its fifth year.
Greg will share his perspective on the history of MLS, how it was founded, how it was like/unlike the NASL, what expansion means, how parity even works, Don Garber’s legacy, the future of MLS, soccer in America, and much more.
Join hosts Stephen Heiner, Per Lahti, David Avery, and Ryan Shea Hourigan as we spend some time discussing these issues with Greg.
Season 1 of The Beautiful Game will feature 6 special episodes focusing on one aspect of our show. This is episode 1 of that series.
The Beautiful Game is a soccer podcast devoted to educating the newest fans of the world’s most popular sport. We cover the latest news in UEFA Champions League, Barclays Premier League, Major League Soccer, and World Cup. We believe you can understand where you are and where you are going if you understand where you came from, so we also feature interviews with soccer writers and journalists to give a broader historical perspective to current news. We will also periodically review rules and regulations so the newer listener can bring a greater context to enjoying our favorite sport.
