NWSL Players Fought Hard For In-Season Vacation — They’re Vacationing Even Harder

When the NWSL players and league agreed to a landmark first-ever Collective Bargaining Agreement in February, most of the focus was on guaranteeing players a living wage, and for good reason.

What’s A Xogg? Pre-MLS Franchise Built With Briefcases Of Cash, The Mob And A Victoria’s Secret CEO

It all started with a throwaway line: "If anyone knows what a Xogg is, please get in contact with me," I wrote in an article about the best names of defunct American soccer teams back in April.

I pondered the absurdity of the Columbus Xoggz — a name without meaning that still captures the imagination of a soccer writer who wasn't even alive when the team played.

What Did Real Madrid And Club América Look Like The Last Time They Played In San Francisco?

Real Madrid and Club América play a friendly on Tuesday, July 26 as part of the Soccer Champions Tour 2022. The game takes place in San Francisco and marks the second time they've squared off in this city through five total historical meetings.
