About the Episode


It’s coming home! Well, the FIFA World Cup is coming to the country we call home in 2026 with Toronto and Vancouver officially being named host cities for the first World Cup to be co-hosted by three countries. Brendan Dunlop, Craig Forrest and Jimmy Brennan talk with Vancouver based multimedia journalist Alexandre Gangué-Ruzic, of One Soccer, CanPL and Between The Sticks, about BC Place being named one of the 16 venues. The crew are excited by the prospect of exciting games in Toronto, react to Edmonton not being awarded any fixtures, and criticize FIFA for valuing Boston and Foxborough as a better option than some of the others. MLS’s new 10 year, $2.5 billion broadcast deal with Apple TV has the boys question why it’s so expensive for working class soccer fans to watch all the games they want to.
