Front Row Soccer (FRS) covers the beautiful game in the metropolitan area from professional to college to the youth ranks. The New York Red Bulls and New York City FC are the two Major League Soccer teams the website focuses on, while also covering the New York Cosmos (North American Soccer League) and Sky Blue FC (National Women’s Soccer League) as well. When appropriate FRS also will have coverage of U.S. national team events and matches — women’s and men’s — plus international news.
Editor Michael Lewis and Photographer Keith Furman are the co-founders of the website, which kicked off in February 2017.
Front Row Soccer editor Michael Lewis has covered eight World Cups, seven Olympics and all 22 MLS Cups. He writes about New York City FC and the U.S. national team for Newsday and pens a soccer history column for the Guardian.com. Lewis, who has been honored by the Press Club of Long Island and United Soccer Coaches (formerly the NSCAA), is the former editor of BigAppleSoccer.com. He has written seven books about the beautiful game and has two more in the works, including one about the Rochester Lancers.
