AT&T/AUDIENCE Sports Episode 6
Who are the people behind the community soccer? Watch this final episode of the 6 part series and discover who prefers to work at grassroots over the premiership.
This Wednesday, March 21, Episode 6 of “The Pitch” presented by AT&T AUDIENCE Sports will air. Rightfully titled The Grassroots, the episode explores the different tiers of futbol overseas and how FC United of Manchester was formed in the final installment of the series.
The advent of the Premier League made the highest level of English football an international commodity, followed and loved by fans around the world. But below those rarified heights, there are many more football clubs who would consider themselves lucky to draw a crowd in the thousands, let alone the millions who watch the Premiership.
The non-league – the fifth tier of English football and below – is as multi-faceted and complex as the professional game, if rather less glamorous, but there is one thing that unites them all: an all-consuming passion for football. This episode tells the story and examines the motivations of those who choose to give their time, money and effort to the clubs at the heart of their communities rather than the behemoths of the Premiership.
