Happy New Year (and Happy 15th Birthday to SBI Soccer)

Happy New Year (and Happy 15th Birthday to SBI Soccer)

Happy new year everyone. It is a significant day. Not just because it’s the first day of the year, but because today marks SBI Soccer’s 15th anniversary.

We launched SBI as an independent website in 2008, and as we enter our 16th year of operation, we will work to rebuild the site to the previous levels that we have enjoyed, as we work to ensure that SBI is one of your go-to American football news sites.

American football has had a momentous year, with the United States Men’s National Team returning to the World Cup for the first time in eight years. The team’s run to the round of 16 and a memorable 0-0 draw with England were the highlights of the USMNT’s return to the big stage.

We also saw the United States Men’s National Under-20 Team secure a place at the Under-20 World Cup and the Olympics with an impressive run in Concacaf qualifying.

On the club side, the Seattle Sounders became the first MLS team to win the Concacaf Champions League title in the competition’s current format, while Los Angeles FC won their first MLS Cup title in of the best MLS Cup final in league history.

The United States Women’s National Team also enjoyed success, winning the Concacacaf W Championship title as well as another SheBelieves Cup. The Portland Thorns added to their own legacy by winning a third NWSL Championship.

As SBI heads into Year 16, we realize the need to strengthen our editorial team, so we are looking for contributors to help us cover American football as fully as possible. We will be creating paid positions as well as internships, so if you are an aspiring writer, editor, social media expert, graphic designer or videographer and are interested in producing content covering American football, contact us at [email protected]

Our readers have always played an important role in helping us improve and refine the work we do, so thank you for your continued support and feedback over the past 15 years.

Thank you to all of you who have spent some or all of the past 15 years reading SBI. We’re ready to make 2023 an even better year, with even better coverage, so stay tuned.
