Download the App, make your picks, win a prize!

Are you ready to test your prognostication skills against our team of experts and have the chance to win a USL Championship prize? Good, because USL Championship Pick ‘Em is back.


Once again this season, scoring for the experts will be done by points. Each expert will receive 1 point for every correct pick, and get the chance to shoot for 3 points with their “Lock of the Week”. Each expert's Lock of the Week is shown with a Championship Gold background in the table below. If their Lock selection is wrong, they’ll be deducted a point.


Our panel consists of six experts each week:


Nicholas Murray is the USL’s Director of Editorial and brings an encyclopedic knowledge of the league’s history from his decade working for the organization.

Mike Watts is the voice of the USL Championship on ESPN, having first called the USL Championship Final in 2015, and has vast experience working in soccer broadcasting.

Kelsi Steele is the host of USL Podcast Steele Some Time, and as the USL’s Senior Manager of Social Media and Content also hosts Hat Trick, Off the Post and Matchday on the league’s official channels.

Devon Kerr is a former player turned broadcaster who serves as the lead analyst on the USL Championship Game of the Week

Jeff Rueter is a staff writer for The Athletic. Based in Minnesota, Rueter's work has previously appeared in The Guardian, ESPN FC, Sky Sports, FourFourTwo USA and Howler Magazine.

The USL Show is a weekly podcast largely dedicated to covering the news, events, and results of the USL Championship. They upload every Wednesday and can be found online or on Twitter @TheUSLShow.
