“This partnership with The Whistle will allow MLS and KickTV to reach an audience of
80 million engaged Xbox users who align very well to our target of young tech-savvy soccer fans,” said MLS Digital vice president Chris Schlosser in a
statement. “Their Xbox app looks amazing and we are excited to be involved with the launch. The Whistle understands our audience, knows how to keep fans engaged and will be a great partner for
