It’s that time of the year where the seasons come to an end, and it’s an opportunity to reflect on what has been an incredible year of soccer from around the world. It’s not just the games themselves, but all of the remarkable experts, podcasts, written word and other coverage that adds to our enjoyment of the sport. But before we launch the 2023 World Soccer Talk Awards on June 1st, we need your help to make sure that we didn’t miss any nominees.
