For Soccer Ventures Launches First-Ever Podcast Network Devoted to Soccer In America
Three Content Driven Initiatives Include 'Orange Slices,' With USMNT Player Mark McKenzie, 'Best Soccer Show,' forming the basis for diverse, engaged storytelling; Announce Partnership with Leading Women's Soccer Publisher, Girls Soccer Network
The first original shows to launch on the FSV network will include "Orange Slices," hosted by former U.S. Men's National Team star Heath Pearce and rising American star Mark McKenzie of the Philadelphia Union, as well as the reintroduction of "The Best Soccer Show," with Sirius XM's Jason Davis and Jared DuBois.
"There are many diverse voices in American soccer who deserve a new platform to discuss their experiences throughout the vast soccer community. Podcasting has emerged as a megaphone for storytelling, and we've recognized that there is no better way to invest in elevating the American soccer story than to give its future leaders the mic," stated Philadelphia Union Investor and FSV Principal Richie Graham.
"The next decade of soccer in the U.S. will be transformative. Both fans and players alike will be protagonists in leading the growth of the sport throughout this period, and we believe Orange Slices and The Best Soccer Show provide each their space," said Pearce, Chief Creative Officer at For Soccer Ventures. "Our network will add new, like-minded partners, such as Girls Soccer Network and additional shows launched in the coming months, as we look to celebrate the extraordinary efforts of those who've gotten us here, while shining a light on our path forward as a soccer nation."
