American Soccer, GolTV’s weekly news and highlights show, aired its last show tonight, at least in its current incarnation.
The show, which is arguably the best US-produced soccer show on television, is seeking a sponsor. Up until recently, US Navy sponsored the show, but now that their sponsorship has ended, it’s hard to justify the show continuing unless it’s making money for the network.
The shame of the matter is that the show is remarkable and fully deserves a top name sponsor, more so than some of the other soccer-related programs out there that are poorly produced. American Soccer is quality. From the production quality to the hosts (Phil Schoen, Julian Gonzalez and Kelly O’Donnell), the show is enjoyable and informative.
Let’s hope that a sponsor is found soon. Otherwise, what other program is out there that covers U.S. soccer-related news from the World Cup to Major League Soccer to even youth soccer?
