Interest in soccer will soar this year when the World Cup is played in Brazil. With that in mind, if you were going to start a new minor league soccer franchise, a World Cup year would seem to be a good time to do it.

Tonight, Lansing United will play their first National Premier Soccer League game. Current State’s Scott Pohl speaks with owner Jeremy Sampson, a former local sportscaster who no longer works in TV sports, but who still has a passion for sports, especially soccer.

Sampson says that this passion led him to explore the idea of owning a team.
