Soccer Wire started as a Mid-Atlantic focused email newsletter titled Potomac Soccer Wire in December, 2006, and has been going strong ever since. Our unique focus on covering “local” soccer news of most interest to participants, decision makers and influencers within the youth club soccer world is praised by our readers.

In June of 2014 we launched the Tri-State Soccer Wire email newsletter covering the states of Connecticut, New Jersey and New York. Simultaneously, we narrowed the general focus of what we cover from “all things American soccer across the USA”, to “Covering all things related to the Player Development Pyramid in the USA – with a particular focus on our newsletter markets in the Potomac and Tri-State Regions”.

At the same time we narrowed and deepened our coverage within the newsletter markets, we also expanded beyond just news reporting to include regular weekly original advice and opinion content, with virtually no geographic focus whatsoever.

And in January 2015 we launched a Soccer Business category to capture the growing industry of soccer outside the lines. We also launched the Soccer Tournament Wire in January, a weekly email newsletter that emphasizes our many tournament partners with open registrations, as well as sharing tournament news from SoccerWire.com from the previous week.
