What’s your favorite thing about working in soccer?
My favorite part about working in soccer is the amazing community that comes with supporting the sport. The competitive nature and bonds I have created with other fans have helped me form lifelong friendships. I now have soccer friends all over the globe.

What are you most excited about for the 2023 Women’s World Cup? 
I am most excited to see how football has advanced since the last World Cup.  A lot of nations have improved, and that will be evident when we watch the tournament progress.

You’re an EA Sports ambassador and content creator. What were your top 3 priorities for World Cup preparations? 
My top 3 priorities were:

  1. Connecting gaming (FIFA) fans with the tournament on a global scale.
  2. Shining a light on the amazing players in the tournament through videos on my platforms.
  3. Hosting watch parties and sharing the excitement for the tournament with my community on Twitch.

What advice would you give someone who wants to become an EA Sports ambassador and content creator in the soccer industry?
My suggestion for someone who wants to become a content creator in football and gaming is: no matter who you are, your gender, race, sexual orientation, etc…… just do it! There is a place for you to succeed, and if you are passionate about it, people will love to join you in that passion. We need more diverse voices bringing to light women in football and gaming!

What impact do you think more women and unrepresented folks working in soccer will have on equity in the industry? 
Having more women in the space will increase the visibility of the women’s game and help advance the sport as a whole. Women are even going to be in [EA Sports] FC 24 Ultimate Team, so the number of eyes on women’s soccer is about to be massive, I can’t wait!

Kacey, thank you for sharing such a unique insight into the soccer industry with us. We’re stoked to see the impact your work is having on growing the game!
