European Soccer Events, US Soccer's Future, and Marketing Challenges in MLB/NHL with Martino Puccio from The Athletic

ZenSports Co-Founder & CEO, Mark Thomas, is joined by Martino Puccio, a Serie A Soccer and Gambling Contributor for The Athletic.

As an avid Serie A and Soccer fan, Martino breaks down for the audience how all of the different European Soccer leagues are currently structured, what went down this week with the European Super League, and what it will take for Soccer to finally take off here in the US.

Mark and Martino also discuss where MLB/NHL falls short in terms of marketing, and of course, gambling and crypto.
