The Soccer Tour is a journey to explore all levels of the sport across the diverse North American soccer landscape.

Lifelong soccer fan Steven Bernasconi is on an eight month, 30,000 mile road trip across the continent to meet and interact with people closest to the sport.

Throughout the journey, he will film and produce a travelogue as well as create digital content that tells the stories of our continent’s clubs and the network of people that have built, and continue to grow, the World’s Game in our backyards

The Soccer Tour will be chronicled in episodic videos, photos, and blog posts across digital and social media. It’s the first of its kind, and a long time coming.

About Steven Bernasconi

Guess what? Full disclosure: I’m not some amazing filmmaker, or photographer, or social media influencer. I’m just a passionate guy with an appetite for adventure, a love of the Beautiful Game, and a camera.

I am: Fascinated in gaining perspective from fellow soccer supporters and enthusiasts. Passionate about the development of soccer in the U.S. and Canada. Intrigued by storytelling through digital content creation. Interested in preserving the integrity of the project and learning and growing as I go. Optimistic about the support I’ll receive from friends and followers of the project. Doing this because I love soccer.

My experience in the sport is lifelong, and comes as a former player, referee, coach, supporter and public relations professional. Most recently I was the director of media and communications for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers professional soccer club, where I developed meaningful relationships across the soccer world over more than five seasons with my hometown team.

I am not: A professional filmmaker or photographer. An expert. An accredited journalist. Expecting anything. Getting paid to do this (aside from the support of my patrons). Hopeful of gaining a bazillion followers. Interested in doing this for the money. Ruling anything out. Taking anything for granted
