The Bay State Soccer Sentinel is the brainchild of longtime journalist Sean Sweeney, who has covered professional soccer from his home base in north central Mass. since 2014, as well as the New England Revolution for BostonSportsJournal.com since 2018.
Soccer in New England — and getting down to this site’s essence, Massachusetts — is more than just the Revs, though; yes, they will be our main focus, but the sport continues to grow outside of MLS. The world’s game in the Bay State has the first-division club and its USL League One side, but there’s also lower league soccer, from Boston City FC to Greater Lowell to Valeo, all in the NPSL. There’s also the UPSL Patriot Division sides, and we cannot forget the Western Mass. Pioneers, or the clubs from Fall River. And the Bay State Soccer League, which is uber-competitive? You bet!
But that’s not all.
Soccer fans in Massachusetts are also Premier League fans. They support the Big Seven of the two Manchester clubs, the two from Liverpool, and the three from London. That is why BSSS will cover the biggest games in the Premier League, with a Massachusetts edge.
