Between the Posts is adding two new leagues!
We’ve got news for you!
Just over seven months into our existence, Between the Posts is ready for a next step. Starting this weekend, we will expand our coverage with the Major League Soccer and the Campeonato Brasileiro.
The first MLS match covered will be Seattle Sounders versus Los Angeles FC, while Flamengo – Cruzeiro serves as the first match in Brazil. And… there is a little treat for true South American football aficionados, as we will also dive into Copa Libertadores action this season, as well as Copa Sudamericana fixtures and of course the later stages of the Copa do Brasil. And… entering South America also means we will bring you reports of the upcoming Copa America, starting June 14th.
Brazilian futebol is brimming with excitement at this time of year. The state championships have just finished, no less than seven of the twenty Serie A clubs have already dismissed their manager, and new talents are being propelled to elite levels of expectation. Yet, the first ball of the Campeonato Brasileiro is still to be kicked. Never a shortage of excitement in Brazilian football, and at Between the Posts we can’t wait to dive into the action.
In the United States, the MLS is entering match day nine, so we’ve got some catching up to do. The Eastern Conference is quite a packed bunch, with D.C. United leading by a mere three points and reigning Champions Atalanta United are still adjusting to new manager Frank de Boer, having just recorded their first win two weeks ago.
The Western Conference is LA territory so far, with both clubs from the City of Angels leading the table. The free scoring Los Angeles FC may have their toughest challenge of the season coming up, with a trip to third-placed Seattle Sounders. We’re quite happy to announce that we will feature a detailed match report of this top clash.
All of this means that we will follow seven domestic leagues Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, MLS and Campeonato Brasileiro. week-in-week-out, combined with four international club competitions. Champions League, Europa League, Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericano. During international breaks, we will keep following the UEFA Nations League and the Copa América.
One of the main reasons we introduced the subscriber model in January was to be able to expand the coverage. Three months into this, we are very happy with a rapidly growing membership count, meaning we can push forward with our ideas. For Gold Plan members, all of the additional leagues will be available immediately, while for new members Brazil or the MLS can now be picked under a Bronze or Silver Plan.
We can’t wait to get underway with our expanded coverage and we’re hoping to bring more surprises like this sooner rather than later.
