The SVG Podcast: Inside the MLS is Back Tournament Bubble with Amy Rosenfeld, VP of Production at ESPN

What's it like working on this crew and what will the matches from Walt Disney World look like?

While sports like golf, auto racing, and even bull riding have returned with socially-distant, crowdless live events, the rubber is truly about to hit the road in the return of team sports as we enter the final weeks of July. Major League Soccer is one of the first out of the gate with the MLS is Back Tournament beginning at the Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World on July 8.

ESPN, alongside the league, is overseeing the production of all matches and on this episode of The SVG Podcast we take you inside “the bubble” with Amy Rosenfeld, VP of Production for ESPN. We discuss everything from what the productions might look like, her opinion on fake crowd noise (and why you won’t hear it during the MLS is Back Tournament), and what its like to work on this crew.

This interview was recorded on July 2 with SVG’s Director of Digital Brandon Costa.
