The Movement, presented by AT&T, is MLSsoccer.com's look into soccer culture from on the field to off. Their latest episode takes a look back at the inaugural eMLS Cup at the PAX East event in Boston from April 2018 where 19 of the best FIFA 18 competitors in North America competed in a new tournament.
Host Calen Carr, a former MLS striker, dives deep into the PAX East experience talking with a host of people in the burgeoning esports space: Players–both eMLS competitors and New England's Kelyn Rowe and Juan Agudelo, former USMNT star Jimmy Conrad, as well as talk with writers from ESPN and a college sociologist about the attraction of esports, the challenges of the game, and how FIFA is at a unique intersection of soccer culture and fandom.
