A Question for Our Readers

Over the last few weeks, I have received some e-mails and comments asking for more detail on certain topics, more coverage of certain issues and requests for interviews with front office and sponsor representatives.  Let me say that I really appreciate the feedback and I will try and add those items (and more) over the coming weeks.  This site is an evolving enterprise (after 2 1/2 years) and reader input is the primary catalyst for determining the type of content I provide. 

To that end, I decided to stray from my usual posting protocol to put out a request to you for more thoughts on what types of stories you want to see as Footiebusiness.com continues to grow and mature.  Please drop a line in the comments section below or send me an e-mail to footiebusiness@gmail.com and let me know what you want to see in the coming months.  I am certain that there are business stories out there that deserve coverage that I have neglected; please let me know.

Along the same line, please also touch base if you are interested in authoring a guest post or posts about a specific  topic or general area of soccer business interest.  Over the years, some of the most interesting and detailed content on this site has come from readers with passion or knowledge of a soccer business issue that is extraordinary. There have been a number of guest authors and all have added really rich and thought provoking content.  Even if you don’t want to write a full length post, I really enjoy reading the comments this site has accumlated over the years.  Sometimes the best discussions are generated from a comment rather than a post.  Feel free to add a business thought in the comments section of a post (no matter how off topic). 

As always, thanks so much for reading.

  1. To be honest, I like the FO interviews the best. This gives great insight into what they are thinking.

  2. I like the posts that discuss league revenue sources and their growth/decline.

  3. I agree with the above. And I also would like to hear about new marketing strategies (what has SUM been up to) and new product lines (e.g., MLS branded soccer gear).

  4. I think this website is great in its coverage of the business side of soccer in the US. However, I think there can be some expansion to perhaps the NASL, the WPS, and even to stories involving US-based spanish media. For instance, is MLS still paying Univision/telefutura to televise its games? How much is the FMF contract with Univision/Telemundo? I know the Chivas v. America game gets around 6mil viewers in the US alone. Ditto for Fox coverage of EPL, La Liga, Serie A, etc.

  5. Thanks for all of the feedback! Those of you who sent e-mails and comments…keep them coming. I will definitely look to incorporate these items going forward.


  6. I like everything that gives insight into soccer’s place in American society, especially in comparison to other professional sporting ventures. TV, radio, and print coverage as well as attendance figures,
