For Kicks Podcast, Episode 64: Supporter culture with Nicky Cottee

Supporter culture. It’s something that comes with a lot of question marks for a lot of Canadians, including long-standing fans like us. We continued our quarantine diaries by inviting Nicky Cottee, president of the Red River Rising supporter group, to come on the podcast and talk about what the heck we even mean when we say supporter culture.

A fellow NWSL and Canadian women’s national team fan, Nicky tells us about how she went from finding the courage to stand with the supporters at her first NWSL match to becoming president of Winnipeg’s pro club’s group. And, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to chat a little about women’s soccer, Canada and the NWSL.

There’s not a lot of news but we also talk about the impending return of Frauen-Bundesliga, the NWSL’s status and some updates from FIFA.

Stay safe, everyone!
