Qatar's successful bid for the 2022 World Cup caused quite a stir in the football community.
Originally from Torrance, California, Hayden is a die-hard LA Galaxy and USMNT fan. His grandfather was an inaugural season ticket holder to the LA Galaxy, and he actively attended games with him for 11 years before moving away for college. Currently, Hayden is attending Baylor University in Waco, Texas where he’s pursuing a BBA in Sports Sponsorship & Sales in hopes of one day working for an American soccer franchise. Since attending college, Biernat’s interests in soccer have shifted from beyond the field of play, and more to soccer’s ability to bring about positive social and political impacts to the world. Because of this, He hopes that his writings will give readers an insight into the various sub-communities around American soccer in order to highlight soccer’s cultural significance. Outside of soccer, Hayden enjoys going to the beach, attending church, playing volleyball, and attending Baylor sporting events.
