Stepping back from Soccer Cleats for five minutes, I thought I would share two of my favorite soccer specific magazines as a recommendation to check out as we approach the holiday season! If you have never subscribed to a magazine, it’s pretty easy to do and also allows a break from only receiving bills in the mail! My wife purchased a subscription to Soccer America last Christmas for me as a gift, and I will definitely be getting a renewal in the next few months! Here are the big two I recommend:
Soccer America ($80 for 12 issues)
Covering all things to do with the American game. Main focus is on MLS and the mens national team. A magazine for the soccer patriot!
Soccer360 ($60 for 6 issues)
Covers mainly European soccer stories and news, but there is a lot of US news included. This one is more of an ‘international’ magazine.
Also worth noting is the fact that if you are thinking of ordering a subscription as a gift for Xmas, now would be the right time to do so as it takes approx. 4 weeks to receive the first issue. Obviously, since the MLS season is just winding down, Soccer360 might be a better option, but by the time you start receiving Soccer America it would be preseason time, and the info in regards to off season news and info is well updated!
If you subscribe to either magazine, and have some comments to share please do!
