Episode 546 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Naked Ambition with guests Colin Elmes and Sian Bagshawe)
We’re back with another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, Canadian, and North American football chat!
It’s been pretty quiet on the western front when it comes to the Whitecaps (should we be concerned yet?), but there’s been other stuff to talk about to make up for it, a lot of which we’ll discuss in this episode.
The draw for the 2023 Canadian Championship has been made, we delve into that and look at the paths ahead for the three BC sides, one of those being TSS Rovers. We sit down for a chat with TSS head honcho Colin Elmes about the club’s stellar 2022 on and off the pitch, what lies ahead in 2023, and the team’s first ever shot at the Voyageurs Cup.
We also sit down for an in-depth chat with League1 BC General Manager Sian Bagshawe about the league’s successful inaugural season, expansion, the upcoming season, and future plans.
Plus there’s still time to chat about the new strategic partnership between CONCACAF and CONMABOL, we wrap up our musical tribute to Terry Hall, and take another trip in the 13th Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival.
