The History of Utah Soccer
The next installment exploring the history of soccer in Utah focuses on the pre- and post-war years of the First World War. The organizing and formalizing of the game in Utah both helped influence the national soccer authorities to restructure and apply for international membership, as well as endure the long absences of play during WWI. And on these foundations, buried under the ashes of war, the next era of football was built.
This is the first in a series of pieces exploring the history of soccer in Utah. It begins with a look at the pre-1910 landscape.
