“Footy Prime: The Podcast is Canada's most-listened-to podcast for a reason,” said Jordan Bitove, co-owner of Torstar. “[Hosts] James, Craig, Brendan, Jimmy and Daniel offer unique perspectives, interviews and coverage of the beautiful game and we are immensely proud to have them as a partner for Torstar's coverage of the EPL, La Liga, MLS and, of course, Team Canada's men's national team as they compete in the World Cup in November. Our listeners will have a front-row seat to what is most likely to be Canada's golden moment on the global stage.”
