We're giving two interviews for the price of one today as we
welcome two women making major moves in the world of professional
women's sports in Jessica Berman & Diana Matheson.
First, we talk to the Commissioner of the National
Women's Soccer League, Jessica Berman. Jessica gives us an idea of
the direction she is taking her league in and lets us know what the
league's plan is when it comes to fielding top tier talent and
their efforts to get more of the games nationally televised before
she heads out.
With Jessica gone, we then talk to former Canadian National
Team Member Diana Matherson and her plans for "Project 8" - a brand
new Professional Women's Soccer League in Canada set to begin in
2025. Diana fills us in on the teams that have committed to the
league so far and hints at a few other locations we should expect
to see join in the coming months. We find out what level of soccer
Diana plans on fielding, the sponsors involved with the program and
understand her vision a bit more in our conversation today as we
kick off your Canada Day weekend.
