We have a bold mission and vision here at the BBL.
We want a large, well-engaged and informed soccer community in the Magic City. And in order to get there, the BBL was created to augment the already established local media soccer coverage, which is pretty much non-existent, right?
And over the first two years of the BBL, we have mainly focused on the Birmingham Hammers, our local semi-professional soccer club. But they are not the only game in town.
We have all of the local high school and club teams that are underrepresented in our local media coverage.
We have local colleges as well.
When was the last time you were able to open up a local online news source and read a well-thought out opinion piece about the development of youth talent in our area…. or a recruiting analysis of the many local college teams.
When was the last time you read a fun opinion piece about our soccer supporter groups in the area? Probably never.
Well those days are over.
The BBL is the your forum. Any of you can be a guest blogger on the BBL and write just about anything you’d like.
I can only cover so much at the BBL. But with the Guest Blogger program, we can truly build a website that will service the entire soccer-loving community in the Magic City.
I hope those of you who have an opinion and enjoy sharing that opinion with others will learn more about how the BBL can further your audience.
