Excitement in the bar at the Westin hotel last night was bubbling over – with discussion of who’s going to be the first pick (The Guardian has a view), but just as much with digesting a great day of talks and discussions as the MLS hosted all the clubs in a conference which is part of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America annual jamboree.
We’re delighted to announce that MLS Digital’s Chris Schlosser made his first pick yesterday – and it was Seven League.
Using our experience of working in the Premier League with Manchester City FC, our broader experience of sports clubs and organisations and our wealth of experience in digital media, we’ll be looking at club growth strategy across the league.
The best part of this trip has been meeting the people and hearing the high level of digital discussion. There are lots of challenges that are identical to those that face UK sports bodies – and many that are the same as any digital media business – but every market has its own distinct issues and we’re very excited about digging into them over the course of our work.
Thank you to the MLS Digital team and all the clubs I’ve met so far for the warm welcome. We look forward to accelerating the league’s digital performance together. As for today, may you get the picks you want.
