FTBL Ep. 83 - CONCACAF Champions League Special

Jorge and Mark are joined by Hugo Carlos Chavez from to chat about the FIFA presidents, CONCACAF Champions League draw, Whitecaps, MLS and Womens World Cup.

Fans of the Vancouver Whitecaps have waited literally months to find out who they would play in the group stage of the upcoming CONCACAF Champions League.  To help break down the 2015/16 edition of the CCL Jorge and Mark welcome back Hugo Carlos Chávez from Fú and Tiro Libre Radio to the show to tell us more about the draw and which teams could do well in the competition.

In Part 1 (1' - 33') the guys kick off the show discussing the latest in the ongoing FIFA corruption scandal before a lengthy discussion on the CCL.

In Part 2 (34' - 61') the guys circle back to review the Whitecaps' 2-1 win over Real Salt Lake.  The final segment of the show features a discussion on the heroes and zeroes of the MLS season so far, and Hugo closes out the show by bringing us up-to-date on the Mexican Women's National team and their expectations for the Women's World Cup.
