U.S. Soccer and MLS Hosting Google+ Hangouts on Air from U.S. MNT Camp
The U.S. Men’s National Team, currently in camp at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, will host Google+ Hangouts on Air with Major League Soccer players from its training camp this week.
Under the “One Nation. One Team.” banner, the Digital Week will include eight MLS players on head coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s 30-player preliminary roster for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Select fans from each MLS club will be awarded the opportunity to participate in the Google+ Hangout on Air, connecting them with players through an extensive “jumping” model where the players will join multiple fan hangouts rather than one single location. In addition to fielding questions in the Google+ Hangout, the moderator will also ask questions that have been submitted through social media and with the #ForClubAndCountry hashtag.
In a unique format, players from different MLS teams will take part in the same Hangout to converse with fans of both clubs. The Hangout groupings are as followed: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake) and DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo) and Michael Parkhurst (Columbus Crew), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes) and Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City), and Maurice Edu (Philadelphia Union) and Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy).
Davis and Parkhurst will take part in their Hangout this Thursday at 4 p.m. CT. If you'd like to participate in this special opportunity, click here to register!
