28 Feb A can’t-miss night of soccer talk with A Football Podcast!
For Kristian Jack and Steven Caldwell, there was just never enough time. While they both love their jobs as soccer analysts with TSN, television broadcasts always come with time constraints.
They wanted a platform where they could extend the conversation, so they launched “A Football Podcast”.
“The sport has been really good to us both and we are passionate about it,” explains Jack. “[We] often have in-depth conversations about players and teams so we wanted to bring some of those discussions to an audience and so far the response had been very positive.”
Tonight they will be hosting the first ever live edition of the show at The Rivoli in Toronto. It promises to be a night of laughs and great conversation with an incredible lineup of Canadian soccer players and personalities. Those joining the pair on stage include Jonathan Osorio, Justin Morrow, Kyle Bekker, Luke Wileman, Carmelina Moscato and Manny Aparicio. Limited tickets are still available. Use code “afp” to get $5 off your ticket purchase. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
“We are very excited for the event,” says Caldwell. “We hope the atmosphere inside the Rivoli is one of passion and learning where everyone, including ourselves, can leave the event having learned something new and with a heightened optimism for the future of soccer in Canada.”
The night will follow a similar format to the popular podcast, with conversations ranging from leagues all around the world to plenty of Canadian soccer talk covering both the men’s and women’s side of the game. It will also include the popular #AskAFP segment, so have questions ready to ask Steven, KJ and their guests.
“We are excited to cover it all. Premier League,” says Jack. “LaLiga, Canada Soccer for the women’s and men’s game, MLS, CPL, quiz & giveaways.”
