SSFC Podcast, Episode 16: MLS is Back takes flight, NWSL Challenge Cup reaches knockout stage

And a word on the USL.

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Episode 16 of the Stars & Stripes FC Podcast is here in time to kick off your weekend! This week, we focus on each of the domestic soccer leagues that are back in session here in the United States. First, we dive into the MLS is Back tournament and focus on the soccer after the coronavirus testing was the theme of the first few days. We look at some of the wild matches that have occurred so far, and some of the good and abysmal performances.

After the break, we switch to the NWSL Challenge Cup, which has completed its preliminary stage and has reseeded for the quarterfinals. We look at each matchup and see which players you should look out for when they take the field Friday and Saturday.

Finally, the USL Championship resumed last weekend with fans in the stands. We take a look at why that is a terrible plan and why having fans at the stands at this stage of the COVID-19 pandemic is irresponsible.
