I started playing this beautiful game in the parks of my native city Caracas, Venezuela. When I was 12 years old I had my free transfer to the US to follow my family’s dream to start a new life in a new country.
The last 12 months I have been able to attend, experience and interact with some of the most exhilarating football (soccer) ecosystems in the American continent. From Toronto’s CN Tower, to Montevideo’s Punta del Este, I present a 12 part mini-series titled :”Tactics and Didactics: Learnings from a tour of the Beautiful Game.”
I will be releasing posts on a weekly basis on topics like football’s influence on cultural and societal level and professional football player’s philosophies and methodologies.
The 12 part series will include:
10. USA (Academy)
12. USA (Professional)
This space is meant to give readers a grasp on my journey and it’s participants while adding factual and contextual content. Every step of the way provides a valuable lesson, regardless of the direction.
Sincerely, Erik Marquis.
