Every week, Peter Schaad, Mark Rogers and Jon Rogers (along with periodic guests) examine the beautiful game from secret bunkers deep behind enemy lines. Whether it's the Whitecaps, big issues from MLS, or our National team programs, Footy Soldiers is a show dedicated to identifying heroes, while exposing enemies. There will also be a healthy dose of laughter and love as we honor the cultural and nostalgic relevance of this most glorious game.
