The Final Third - A Soccer Podcast


An in-depth American soccer podcast covering MLS, Premier League, USMNT/USWNT, Champions League, and more. We discuss soccer news beyond what happens during the 90 minutes. With more coverage on the roster construction, culture, politics, economics, and logistics of soccer, we strive to give a unique view of the "off the field" aspects of the beautiful game.

Started as a New Year's Resolution by hosts Jack and AJ in 2021, The Final Third has slowly grown into a solid hobby project with a tight-knit community. As the podcast goes on, we take great pride in discussing many different leagues and teams. Whether it be US Soccer - Major League Soccer, NWSL, USMNT, USWNT; European Soccer - English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga; or the international game - UEFA EURO, Olympics, Copa America, AFCON, CONCACAF Gold Cup, Nations League.

What makes The Final Third different? This show isn't two dudes talking about tactics or results. Jack and AJ are experts in politics, economics, engineering, leadership, and communication by trade, and it shows. The Final Third serves to provide in-depth analysis on soccer's economics, politics, social effects, roster construction, and player development - basically everything that happens off the pitch. Jack and AJ take their expertise and apply it to the world's game.
