Happy New Year (and Happy 9th Birthday to SBI)


Happy New Year everybody. It’s a special day, and not just because it’s the first day of a new year. It is also SBI’s ninth birthday.

We launched SBI as an independent website back in 2008, and as we head into our 10th year of operation we will do our best to remain one of your go-to sites for coverage of soccer in the United States and beyond.

The 2016 calendar year had plenty of challenges, and much like the U.S. Men’s National Team, we at SBI are looking to the new year eager to improve. As SBI rolls into 2017, we are in a period of transition, as we search for new contributors and work to improve our overall coverage.

Today marks the first day of what should be another exciting year for soccer fans. From World Cup qualifying, to the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Under-20 World Cup and Under-17 World Cup, there will be plenty of great events to keep American soccer fans entertained, and we will look to cover it all for you.

Please feel free to share with us what you would like to see more coverage of, what coverage you are enjoying, and things you would like to see us improve.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and be sure to stay tuned as we keep things rolling in 2017.
