You have may have noticed a subtle change when you came to SBI today. Our URL has changed, and so has the site’s official name.
Say hello to SBI Soccer (www.SBISoccer.com). The site’s new name isn’t that drastic a change for readers who have long since started calling the site SBI, but the new URL should help new readers find the site more easily, while the name change serves to better reflect the changes the site has undergone through the years.
What started as a one-man soccer blog has, over the course of the past eight years, transformed into a full-fledged soccer news website with a staff of more than a dozen writers and editors serving to bring you the day’s top soccer news.
As for my role, I continue to run the site as its Editor-in-Chief, and I will continue to be directly involved in the day-to-day operation of the site, and steering the editorial direction of the site. Though my responsibilities as lead writer at Goal.com keep me busy, I do plan on writing more on SBI in the future than I have in the past year. I will also continue working closely with the site’s new writers, and current writers, as we work to continue bringing you quality soccer coverage.
Between the new name, new mobile version, and what should be an influx of new writers in the coming weeks, SBI will have a different look going forward, but I will make sure we continue to stick to the principles and practices that have helped make the site one of the go-to soccer news sites for American soccer fans.
Please bookmark our new URL (www.SBISoccer.com), follow the site’s new Twitter handle (@SBISoccer), and keep making SBI your home for soccer news.
