We want to thank you all that have joined us throughout the season with the AC St. Louis Fanatic podcast.
Now with our new endeavor, we are glad to have NASL’s Director of Communications and Public Relations Kartik Krishnaiyer join us for our premier podcast as the NASL Fanatic.
Gerry and I asked Mr. Krishnaiyer a number of questions from NASL tradition, expansion, possible friendlies against Mexican teams and the good and bad that has happened though this learning curve in their first year.
In addition, we asked him about his favorite EPL team, Manchester City, and their outlook for the future.
For me, I have known Kartik since 1994. He and I were at an event in Tallahassee, when we struck up a conversation about the Florida Gators 1994 Final Four appearance. It wasn’t until years later that we knew that we shared the same passion for soccer.
Though I only started watching soccer around 1997, Kartik has been involved with soccer at a very young age. From 1981 to 1983, while I was still trying to decide if I wanted to play pitcher or 3rd base for my Little League team in Algonquin, IL, Kartik was a ball boy for the old Ft. Lauderdale Strikers.
Kartik was also one of the first big followers of American professional soccer as well, becoming an avid follower of the MLS in 1996.
Before being hired to the NASL, Kartik was a writer for MLS Talk and EPL Talk, founder of The Kartik Report, along with hosting the American Soccer Show on the Champions Soccer Radio Network. He has also been a guest of many podcasts as well.
So we hope that you will listen, and enjoy, our first podcast as the NASL Fanatic.
