Exploitation, Youth Soccer, and College

“I begin with a warning and an observation. First, I do not want to dwell on American soccer troll topics. This post is not meant to gauge the ‘effectiveness’ of the college soccer system in producing elite players as compared to European youth academies. Rather, I want to focus on the intangible. I also want to grapple with a topic that has long ached at my soul: does our consumption of top-level European soccer foster child labor exploitation in Africa and elsewhere? As 21st century consumers with unparalleled access to tomes of information, we have a moral obligation to reflect on how our decisions in aggregate affect the world.” Run of Play
