Penn State Women’s Soccer Alum Ali Krieger Joins Orlando City Broadcast Team

Penn State women’s soccer alum and World Cup champ Ali Krieger has joined Orlando City Soccer Club’s broadcast crew, the team announced Thursday.

In her new role, Krieger will provide analysis and sideline reporting for the remainder of Orlando City’s Major League Soccer season. She’ll also appear on the club’s digital platforms.

“I’m very excited for this opportunity and the chance to bring my knowledge and a different perspective to the Orlando City broadcast team,” Krieger told the club. “I’ve enjoyed all of my previous experiences in game analysis and look forward to both adding value to Orlando City’s product while also continuing to learn, grow and gain more knowledge of this side of the industry.”

This isn’t Krieger’s first time dipping her toes into broadcasting. She’s previously appeared on NBC’s Premier League Mornings Live, helped cover the U.S. Men’s National Team, and appeared as a guest analyst during past Orlando City seasons.

Krieger is currently a member of the Orlando Pride, which needed to sit out of the National Women’s Soccer League Challenge Cup due to a coronavirus outbreak on the team. Previously, she helped lead the U.S. Women’s National Team to two world championship titles, including one in 2019.
