Sep 14, 2021, 04:00 AM

SportsPro editor at large Eoin Connolly talks to Ali Krieger, soccer player for the NWSL’s Orlando Pride who has been capped 108 times by the US women’s national team. 

They discuss how Ali – who was seventh on SportsPro’s list of the world’s most marketable athletes in 2021 – has gone about nurturing her public and commercial profile, both individually and with wife and teammate Ashlyn Harris, and about the freedom and authentic fan connections that can come with living your true self.

They also cover how life in the women’s game has changed and continues to change, and how actions like the US women’s national team’s campaign for equal pay will leave a better environment behind for those players who follow.
