Over the past 20+ years, few have evangelized for and systematically helped grow the footprint of soccer in the United States the way @pwilt1 has.
In the 2nd part of our two part series from our visit to Madison, WI, we had the great fortune of sitting down with the legend himself, who is at the moment the Managing Director of @forwardmadisonfc in @USLLeagueOne and
Earlier in his career, Peter was the founding GM and President of @chicagofire in @mls. He went on to kickstart and/or run 6 other professional clubs, all in the Midwest. Mens, Womens, indoor and outdoor.
And oh yeah, Peter also has SIX championship rings and a “Ring of Fire” ring that is clearly near and dear to his heart as you will be able to tell when he speaks of it!
GMs can be all business but Peter does a magical job of balancing between manager and fan. He bleeds the colors of his clubs, past and present, and the faithful in the stands appreciate his authenticity. To hear him enthusiastically speak about the @fwdflock with so much joy and gratitude is genuinely refreshing.
