Ep. 783 – Fred Matthes (Soccer Sales Consultant)

Fred Matthes recalls the early days of Major League Soccer and the DC United, when the upstart league played 10 squads in massive stadiums and almost folded after 2001, but continued to to greater glory. Matthes talks about the challenges for the MLS, especially when comes to selling the product, but also growing the supporter groups as well as the season ticket numbers. Matthes shares about his time at the Sacramento Republic FC, a USL team attempting to go to the MLS, and the stark reality that relegation may cross the pond from the U.K. to U.S.A. as the sport of soccer grows.
