Thanks, from everyone at SA on the outpouring of well wishes on our 50th year

Soccer America would like to thank all the well wishers who sent us notes of congratulations on the start this week of our 50th year of publishing.


In particular, we were touched by the outpouring of messages on Twitter about what SA meant to our readers in its magazine days and now in digital form. We share some of them here now.

We wish everyone the best during this season of Easter and Passover.

Stay safe!

    I've been reading SA since I was in college (graduated 1984).  The highlight of my college career was being quoted in SA, which covered our (Swarthmore) rivalry with Haverford (unfortunately, we tied...we dominated but couldn't get the winner though Haverford may remember it differently...).  Bottom line is that SA taught me to love the game, and for that, I will forever be grateful.  Well done!

    Thank you for all you've done for US soccer fans. I actually contributed in a very small way back in the 90s. I wrote a few articles on a freelance basis, focused on TV ratings. Was working with Mike on that.

    Congrats Soccer America. Soccer in St. Louis was covered as far back as the early 60's  y local newspapers. Can remember many a time when soccer with the NASL Stars and local high schools had front page coverage, Sports section. Once SA arrived we then had a national periodical to fill us in on the National skinny. Had it with me at home and during the school day.
    Thanks and keep on keeping on
