"If people associate us with Robin Hood and the establishment is the sheriff or Prince John... I'm more than okay with that."
Welcome back to the Pyramid ladies and gentlemen! Got a lot of stuff going on that I'm excited to share with you this week. First, I've added some partnerships, both on what you could say is the 'business side,' along with our first Media Partnership. Check out the new tab labeled 'Partners' to see what we've got.
Second, I'm pleased to announce that our first official Media Partner here at AP is the North County Battalion. As I'm sure you'll remember, we interviewed Jason Barbato over the winter, and once the NCB season kicks off, you'll get updates at least twice a month as to how things are going for the new boys in San Diego.
Third, I'm pleased to announce that today's interview is brought to you by SoccerElf.com. SoccerElf.com is a brand new website dedicated to helping people all across the United States find the nearest pick up game. If you can't find one near you, guess what? You can create one. Right now, it's still the early stages, so AP has partnered with them to help get the word out, get more people on the site, and get more games going everywhere! The more chances to play, the more people will play. And the more people who play, the more the game grows. Check it out, be sure to share and spread the word!
Now, about this interview. Benjamin Falvo is the founder of Kew Forest FC. We actually started this interview back in December of last year, and even did a live Twitter interview one evening. Right after that interview things really took off, and I've just gotten around to getting all of this together. I'm really looking forward to seeing what these guys, and following their progress, especially to see how well the community model works. Check it out.
Welcome back to the Pyramid ladies and gentlemen! Soccer is getting close to being in full swing here in the states. MLS is getting ready for week 4, USL kicks off this weekend, then NASL on April 2, and the NPSL and PDL will be kicking off in a couple of weeks too. Soon, there will be national, regional and local soccer going on then we'll know what to do with.
This week, I've got the pleasure of releasing an interview I did with Jordan Wiebe of the Fresno Fuego. He's a long suffering Arsenal fan, (so sorry) photographer, and has some great things to say about supporting soccer in the lower levels. Check it out.
Well surprise, surprise faithful readers! This week's interview is coming out early! Why is that, you ask? Because I will be on vacation the rest of this week, that's why! And keep your eyes open, the next edition of #FromTheVault on Non League America comes out tomorrow.
Now, this interview is a little bit different for several reasons. One, Gerald Brunner not only runs the Storm, he also works as the Western Conference Manager for the United Premier Soccer League. This also makes Santa Clarita the first UPSL team to ever be interviewed on American Pyramid. Check it out.
"You earn fans outside of your city by winning trophies, being the best and fans respecting what you are doing with your club, the way its being built."
Welcome back to the Pyramid ladies and gentlemen! I've got an exciting interview for you to read today, but first, some catch up. Major League Soccer started this weekend, and had it's highest scoring opening ever with something like 30+ goals. The only team to get a shut out? Sporting Kansas City. That's right, my cities team still remembers how to play some defense!
This week's interview is with David Satterwhite of the Dayton Dynamo. This is an interesting guy to have talked to. To start with, Dayton may be playing it's first season, but it's not it's first year as a club, which David will explain in a little more detail. Even the lower levels aren't immune to teams moving around. The positive of the move though? They've already topped all of last year in terms of revenue. Big things should be happening in Dayton this year. Check it out.
