Written and compiled for soccer fans by a team of experienced writers and editors, North American Soccer Guide 2020 offers a comprehensive look at soccer in North America.
From the Men’s and Women’s national teams of the U.S. and Canada to Major League Soccer, all the way down to the top levels of youth soccer, the Guide covers it all, providing an extensive, easy-to-read book full of facts and information.
Senior editors Charles and Linda Cuttone have decades of experience working in or covering soccer, and contributors Frank Dell’Apa (Boston Globe), Jamie Goldberg (The Oregonian), Brian Trusdell (Associated Press and Bloomberg Sports), and Kathryn Knapp (AP and other outlets), have covered the sport for years.

In addition, the book offers expanded team-by-team records for Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League, recaps of the first seasons of competition for the Canadian Premier Soccer League and USL League One, and a history section anchored by an in-depth statistical review of the 1960’s International Soccer League, which featured major European and South American teams.
The Guide offers a comprehensive review of the 2019 including the FIFA Women’s World Cup; CONCACAF Gold Cup, Nations Cup and Champions League; Canadian Championship; Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup; U.S. Amateur Cups and Men’s and Women’s International Champions Cup.
