ussoccer.com's Studio 90 Web Show Returns to Celebrate Hall of Fame Induction Weekend
Popular Studio 90 Show to Feature Interviews with Each Inductee
and an Exclusive Look at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta, N.Y.
ONEONTA, N.Y. (Aug. 27, 2006) – The popular ussoccer.com web show, Studio 90, that covered every move of the U.S. Men’s National Team at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, is back with two shows from the National Soccer Hall of Fame Induction Weekend in Oneonta, N.Y.
Hosted by U.S. Soccer’s Neil Buethe, Studio 90 at ussoccer.com helped drive the web site to record numbers during the World Cup with the most comprehensive coverage of the team. In Germany, the daily web show featured behind-the-scenes access, exclusive in-studio interviews with players and coaches, and pre- and post-game reactions from players.
In Oneonta, the exclusive access for Studio 90 continues with in-depth interviews of each player inductee, including the popular Back Four Quiz segment that gets inside the personality of each interviewee. Find out who started the first and only brawl in U.S. Women’s National Team history from Carla Overbeck, and what it was like to be at the infamous Munich Olympics in 1972 from Al Trost.
Studio 90 at the Hall of Fame also takes you through the popular museum and, for the first time, into the back room archives to discover many of the sports historical treasures.
This year’s National Soccer Hall of Fame Induction Weekend is highlighted by the honoring of former U.S. National Team stars Alexi Lalas and two-time Women’s World Cup champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Carla Overbeck. The “veteran inductee,” Al Trost, was a U.S. National Team captain in the 1970s and an NASL All-Star, while “builder inductee” Philip Anschutz is a key visionary and investor/operator in Major League Soccer. The annual Induction Ceremony in Oneonta, N.Y., is free and open to the public.
