90Plus Podcast – Interview with Whitecaps CEO Axel Schuster
This is the 90Plus Podcast, where Ben Righetti and Sebastian Pereira talk and cover everything Whitecaps related. A podcast bringing listeners news, game recaps, analysis, and more surrounding Vancouver.
In this week’s episode, Schuster and the guys take a look at the 2020 season that was. They address some big points like the club’s separation from Mark Pannes, how COVID-19 affected his first year with the team, and this upcoming offseason, as well as the future as a whole.
Ben Righetti covers the Whitecaps for Last Word on Soccer, attending practices and games to bring readers the best and most in depth coverage of the team possible. Born in England, Ben was thrown into the life of wearing the blue and white of Chelsea, before moving to Vancouver.
Since then, the Whitecaps have been Ben’s go to for a dose of soccer. The east Londoner recently graduated from the Broadcast and Online Journalism program at BCIT, and hopes that the coverage he provides for Last Word, mixed with his CFL experience and TSN internship can make him a prominent figure in Vancouver’s sports media market.

Born in Colombia, Sebastian has always had a strong passion for the beautiful game, with his top football memories being his country’s deep run in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and watching Liverpool lift the Champions League in 2019.
