Footy Soldiers


An in-depth look at all things soccer with a uniquely Canadian perspective. 

An ex-pro, artist and broadcaster romanticize over the beautiful game, with an emphasis on Canada, its MLS teams, the Canadian Premier League and grassroots development.

Peter Schaad

Former Westside rabble-rouser and current Whitecaps play-by-play guru/Subbuteo obsessive, Peter Schaad has observed the beautiful game from the booth and the pitch for many years. Although German in heritage, he finds a place in his heart for both supporting Aston Villa, and allowing 40 yard screamers in media matches. Neither very German qualities, but alas.


Mark Rogers

Mark played for a number of years overseas and beforehand displayed his leadership abilities as English Bluff Elementary School President - successfully creating the schools first "Pizza Day", as promised in his campaign speech. Valar Morghulis.


Jon Rogers
