Celebrating Soccer

This season, we're telling the stories of the players. The fans. The people who make this sport more than a game - but a way of life. Take a look.

Rising D.C. United midfielder drives the way that he plays - aggressive, but in control

D.C. United center midfielder Russell Canouse is the first to describe his soccer style as commanding and aggressive, the same way he feels when he gets behind the wheel. Learning to drive on the Autobahn as a teenager, Russell gained a sense of control, peace and self-confidence that he taps into on the field for every game.

Continental Tire celebrates soccer in North America by telling the stories of those among us making the game all that it is.

Great coaching helped Tobin Heath develop world class talent, now she’s returning the favor

Honing her skills indoors in harsh east coast winters, and developing them on fields all over the world with the best coaching talent available, made Tobin Heath a star. Now she turns her eye and a helping hand to the generation of girls coming up behind her.

For NYCFC’s Sean Johnson, a feeling unlike any other

Sean Johnson didn’t find soccer right away, but when he did – he found his calling. As goalkeeper for NYCFC, there’s little else in the world like the rush he gets alone in the back facing down a striker – other than the one he gets behind the wheel when it’s just him and the road.

From Nebraska to Alaska, the American Outlaws’ enthusiasm for U.S. Soccer is contagious

Lifelong friends Korey Donahoo and Justin Brunken had a passion for our National Team and no home for it. From organizing local viewing parties, to planning cross-country road trips from their hometown of Lincoln; they’ve taken their love for the national team and built a supporter’s group that spans the nation (and parts of the world) that regularly turns out massive fan sections for the Red, White, and Blue – at home and abroad.
