Happy Anniversary…. to Us!

Amazingly enough, it has been a full year since Footiebusiness first hit the web.  When we started the site, we had no idea how long it would last, whether there was any interest in the business aspects of American soccer or whether anyone would read what we wrote.  A year later, we couldn’t be more pleased with how things have evolved.  We are amazed at the multitudes that come here every day for information about the business of the beautiful game and then keep coming back for more. It has been more fun and  more challenging to bring fresh content on a daily basis than we ever could have imagined and it has been the feedback from our readers that have motivated the site to continue to move forward.   So to our readers, we offer a big THANK YOU.

We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to interview representatives of MLS, WPS,  individual franchises, soccer professionals and authors.  We’ve been honored to be a media voter for MLS end of the year awards and to be linked to by the Sports Business Daily and various soccer and business websites.  Most especially, we’ve enjoyed the give and take with our readers via comments and e-mails.  We are looking forward to a bigger and better second year and invite our readers to let us know what stories you want us to cover.

Finally, we thought we would offer up some of  our favorite posts from the past year:

1.  Our interviews with various MLS Marketing Directors and front office reps about the marketing of American soccer.

2.  Our series on bringing fans to MLS,  including wide ranging surveys of folks who love the game, hate the game, cover the game and everything in between and

3.  Our series on the charitable good works in American soccer.

Thanks again for reading.
