MLS content creator Eli Lesser is the latest guest on the Urban Pitch Podcast! We discuss all things American soccer — from how he got his start covering the league to the differences between a journalist and content creator.
Eli Lesser is a busy guy. As one of the more prominent content creators in MLS, he has consistently been covering the league and all of its drama since 2015. His “This Week in MLS” accounts, particularly on Instagram, have become quite popular and he has become well known across the American soccer community.
As an adamant LA Galaxy fan, much of his coverage has surrounded the vibrant El Trafico rivalry, and we discuss his thoughts on how it has helped the league, how the LA soccer scene has changed since LAFC joined the fray, and how he’s dealt with sticky situations involving rival fans.
