Studio 90 made its debut during the FIFA World Cup in Germany to rave reviews, airing 23 daily shows that showed the detailed intricacies of a team’s World Cup preparation for the first time. The groundbreaking show has since followed with multiple episodes from the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Oneonta, N.Y., in August 2006, and the 2006 Nike Friendlies in Bradention, Fla., in early December.
In January, Studio 90 branched into an area of international soccer never before seen with “Roster Spot,” a three-part series that went behind the scenes into the intense roster selection of a FIFA World Championship qualifying roster. In “Roster Spot,” ussoccer.com followed the real-time story of three players as they tried to make an impression and earn a spot on the U.S. Men’s Under-20 National Team roster in advance of qualifying for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. For the first time ever, soccer fans were able to see how these difficult decisions are made, with access to the coaches and players from the training ground to the meeting rooms.
Unlike anything ever produced, Studio 90 has defined itself as a source for unrivaled behind-the-scenes access throughout U.S. Soccer, telling stories with a unique style, intense detail and trademark humor.
