Monday Night Boycotts, Cancelled Seasons and Stadiums for All
The Borussia Dortmund Chief Executive Hans-Joachim Watzke explains why German fans are staying home and being counted in protest over Monday games in the Bundesliga. The world's most expensive defender Virgil van Dijk tells us how he's had to "step up" his game to settle in at Liverpool after his transfer from Southampton. We hear from the woman behind the Open Stadiums twitter account, a movement of Iranian Women seeking to end discrimination & let women attend stadiums. Rishi Sehgal, the Interim Commissioner of the North American Soccer League, explains why they've had to cancel their 2018 season after a court upheld a decision by the US soccer federation to deny the NASL a second tier status.
