Scratching the Pitch is dedicated to covering lower-division soccer in the United States, where the landscape is constantly changing. We want to bring you the most interesting stories both on and off the pitch, from player profiles to match reports to expansion news and more. Discussion of American soccer starts here because American soccer news happens here.

StP has its headquarters in Dayton, OH. You will find many of the stories here are related to soccer in southwest Ohio. The USL, NPSL, PDL, and MLS all have teams within an hour drive from the home office. We feel the best way to grow the game is to support your local team(s).

The primary focus of this site, though, has always been the USL. StP has used its resources throughout the league to break stories about division sanctioning, expansion, player transfers, and more. We hope to continue to be a source for emerging USL news, as well as provide thoughtful opinion on the stories.

  1. Hi Chad,

    My name is Belinda Cai and I’m the assistant producer for 91.7 WVXU’s “Cincinnati Edition,” working alongside producer Pete Rightmire and host Mark Heyne. Here is our website: http://wvxu.org/programs/cincinnati-edition. You can see our website for archives of past shows. We are trying to put together a segment about FC Cincinnati and soccer, and were hoping you’d come on as a guest. Tana Weingartner suggested you as a great resource.

    Our show airs live Mondays through Fridays, from 1-2 p.m. with two segments each day, each about 25 minutes long. We have slots open Thursday, June 16 from 1:30-2; Wednesday, June 22 from 1-1:30; Thursday, June 23 from 1-1:30 or 1:30-2; and we can look at other times if none of those work. Please let me know if you’re interested and what date works for you!

    Thank you so much in advance. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
