Fans reject Americanization of European soccer: World Soccer Talk Podcast

In the NEW episode, number 219, Christopher Harris and co-host Kartik Krishnaiyer cover the failed attempt of The Super League to Americanize European soccer.

Everything that we dislike about the way American traditional sports is structured was encapsulated in The Super League. No sporting merit. No promotion/relegation. No authenticity.

We analyze why the Super League was rejected, the deciding factors in forcing change and the impact on fans in the United States.
