This week’s episode of the AFTN Soccer Show falls in the CiTR Radio ‘Fundrive’ period, as the radio station tries to raise some money for equipment and other ventures. As such there a little bit of a different vibe, but there’s also a lot of football chat as well.
The big MLS news this past week was that a new CBA has been agreed with the players and there won’t be a strike. We delve into some of the big talking points coming out of it including charters, free agency, DPs, revenue, and lots more.
As Vancouver Whitecaps’ second phase of the preseason comes to an end down in San Diego, we look at what can be gleaned from the three matches, some of the individual performances, the new additions, and the new strip.
We also chat about Christine Sinclair breaking the world goalscoring record, the Canadian women’s national team qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics, and the latest Canadian Premier League news, including the new eighth team in Ottawa.
