Recently I was fortunate enough to connect with soccer enthusiast, blogger and founder of the Dream|Start Soccer blog Joe Howard. Joe is the Editor in Chief of Dream|Start, leading a team of soccer bloggers who are essentially pouring fuel on the small (but growing) fire of American soccer passion as it sweeps throughout the nation.
They’re not only writing about the soccer scenes in America and abroad for current soccer fans, they are deftly making the beautiful game more accessible to an uninitiated American audience who is poised to become the next generation of rabid soccer fans. And if that weren’t enough, they’ve thrown down the gauntlet for both the avid fans and uninitiated alike: “Be a supporter ALL THE TIME, not just every four years… [be part of] changing the game forever in the States.”
Lucky for us at Midwest Soccer, they’ll be generously sharing some of their content here. So from time to time you’ll see their awesome work gracing our site. Of course that shouldn’t stop you from bookmarking the Dream|Start Soccer blog and/or signing up for their email list.
Regardless of how (or where) America’s love affair with the beautiful game ignites and burns, you’ll find the Dream|Start crew at the base of the fire fanning the flames of revolution.
