By Stewart Coggin:
I have been a passionate follower of soccer since the age of nine. When considering career options as a teenager, I decided it would be a wise move to combine my two passions: soccer and writing. While living in England makes traveling to Premier League matches easy (I have been to over 250 games), I also like to take in live action from other countries, and have seen games in Rome, Barcelona and Mallorca over the last few years.
Soccer is the most popular sport on earth. Every week I relish traveling to grounds and covering such a multifaceted game.
