In this episode, World Soccer Talk hosts Christopher Harris and Kartik Krishnaiyer discuss Welcome to Wrexham, the successful FX series, and discuss why pro/rel is or isn’t a non-starter in this country. We also discuss the issues of ownership, community, TV coverage for lower leagues, as well as what makes this series different than the other two popular soccer shows, ‘Sunderland ‘Til I Die’ and ‘Ted Lasso.’ We also take a tangent and discuss whether it’s possible for the US Soccer Federation to set up its own breakaway soccer league in the United States in competition against Major League Soccer.
