TAMPA, Fla. – Pens and paper at the ready, it’s time for USL Game Night!
USL Digital announced on Thursday the launch of a new show that will test the knowledge and wits of players, coaches and fans from across the USL Championship and League One over the next nine weeks. Hosted by the USL’s Kelsi Steele, the show will air every Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET on Facebook, YouTube and the USL app.
The premiere edition will feature a matchup between the Championship’s Indy Eleven and League One’s Union Omaha, with the two-player teams competing over three rounds of games to crown a weekly winner. Competing for Indy will be goalkeeper Jordan Farr and fan Amanda Wallace, with Omaha being represented by midfielder Austin Panchot and fan Bri Rutledge, with all four players connecting and competing via Zoom.
“We’re really excited to kick off USL Game Night,” said Steele, who was recently named to Front Office Sports Rising 25 Class of 2020. “It’s been great fun to connect with some of the personalities from both on the field and in stands across the Championship and League One, and we hope it’ll provide some entertainment for fans every Friday.”
