Memphis, TN— March 30, 2020 — Soccer returns in the United States on Wednesday, April 1… sort of. The Co-Hosts of the My 3 Subs: A Soccer Odyssey Podcast announced today it will feature a full-length “match” presentation (including pre-game, halftime, and postgame shows) between two teams which have never faced each other, Las Vegas and Memphis. In honor of the home team Memphis 901 FC, the pre-game will begin at 9:01 am (central) at My3SubsPodcast.com and on other major podcast platforms.

How?

Memphis 901 FC television broadcaster & My 3 Subs Podcast Co-Host Tim Van Horn will handle the play-by-play of this fantasy match. WHBQ-AM Sports Talk Host Peter Edmiston will be the color analyst for the match. Edmiston, like Van Horn, has called television matches for Memphis 901 FC.

“This has been a tedious project, but more than anything, it’s been a labor of love,“ Van Horn said. “Thanks to my Co-Host and Executive Producer Brodee Scott, we’ve been able to assemble an incredible team of local media talent in a safe, socially distant way and hopefully bring a fun diversion in these very difficult times.” The list of local talent pitching in includes: Pete Pranica (Memphis Grizzlies TV), Corinne Kennedy (Memphis Commercial Appeal), John Varlas (The Daily Memphian), Jarvis Greer (WMC-TV Memphis), JJ Greer and Tyler Springs (Memphis 901 FC on ESPN+), and Jeff Brightwell (University of Memphis Broadcasts).

Why?

No advertising revenue was accepted for this soccer presentation. Instead, the Podcast team has given the “ad” time to local businesses who are part of the Memphis soccer culture and to FeedingAmerica.org, MidSouthFoodbank.org (Memphis), and ThreeSquare.org (Las Vegas). Van Horn added, “While neither club was actively involved in this production, the Podcast team and I are grateful for the joy they bring us fans. We hope we can help each city in some way during this Coronavirus crisis.”
