As many of you know by now, shortly before the start of the 2023 MLS season, we were told by VOX media, and by extension SB Nation, that they would no longer be supporting the vast majority of local coverage for professional soccer. Just about all sites covering both the MLS and NWSL were told they had just over a month to figure out a future. Whether that meant walking away from covering the sport completely, rebranding respective sites, or in our case, taking over the brand while rebuilding a new home for it. After months of worry-filled days, hard-working nights, and a burning passion to keep this community alive, we are incredibly proud to announce we have done just that with our new home for Angels on Parade!
As we sure you can tell, things will be different. In some ways, to some people, that will be a negative, but for most of you out there this will hopefully be a great kind of different. To be honest, not much has or will change. The writers who were working hard to cover LAFC and Angel City FC, myself being one of them, are still here working hard at covering the teams you know and love. We aim to provide you with the same quality of latest news, notes, and reports that you have come to expect from Angels on Parade. They may have taken away some of our resources, but they could never take away our passion for covering the beautiful game in this beautiful city of Los Angeles.
Much like most new homes, this one is far from perfect, but with some love, care, patience, and a bit of help from you the readers, we know we can build this place up into home for us all. A place to lament the bad times, and celebrate the good. A home even more welcoming than what we had before. While we won’t get too into it now, there are plans for even more and different types of content than we have had in the past, but that is for another day. For now, from the bottom of our hearts we just want to say thank you all. For the support you have given us over the last decade, and the support we continue to get. This is a beginning to a new chapter in our existence, but our future is bright and we couldn’t be more excited to get started with you. There is still a lot of season left for both Angel City FC and LAFC, and we can’t wait to cover it all!
