Home / Soccer Coaches / SoccerPro Top 10 Soccer Blog Awards


SoccerPro Top 10 Blogs for 2008We here at SoccerPro are soccer players first, fans second, and businesspeople third. In that order. The owners are not businessmen who decided to open a soccer store because it would be a good cash-flow opportunity, they are lifelong soccer players who opened a soccer store for love of the game and to provide the finest soccer equipment with first hand knowledge. Years of professional and amateur playing experience as well as an avid (and sometimes work-disrupting) fan culture gives us a unique advantage only we can pass on to the fellow player or fan looking for the right soccer gear.

We also recognize the importance of the soccer blogging community, the fan buzz and interest it creates, and the tension it can build. Not to mention the entertainment soccer bloggers can provide!

With our soccer background in mind, we set out to learn what the soccer playing community has to say about soccer blogs. Bloggers talk about other bloggers all the time, which is wonderful, but we here at SoccerProse were asking ourselves the deceptively critical question: To which soccer blogs do real soccer PLAYERS look for entertainment and insight into all aspects of our beloved game?

In order to hear that all important voice and tally the soccer player vote, we figured there’s no better way than to give away a pair of soccer shoes in exchange! And why not give away the players’ most popular shoe, the Nike Mercurial Vapor IV ?!

The players and fans have spoken and these are their favorite soccer blogs. Let the link juice flow.

We would like to thank all who entered the contest, congratulate the two Vapor winners and especially thank all the bloggers who responded to the contest so well!
