The end of 2018 marks the end of Pro Soccer USA’s first season covering soccer. The year brought a lot of challenges, milestones and exciting accomplishments. We can’t wait to move into 2019 with all of you who have supported us in this venture. There are plenty of things to look forward to: our one-year anniversary in March, expanding our coverage of the men’s and women’s games for next season and bringing on even more talented contributors. 

But for now, as we prepare to ring in the New Year, let’s take a look back at some of our favorite stories from 2018:
