Chicago, IL

Bio: Michael Berns is a Senior Soccer Writer and Fighting Illini/Big Ten contributor at The Sports Blaze. He is a huge sports fan, particularly of the Premier League, La Liga, Champions League, and college and pro football and basketball. His favorite teams are Real Madrid, Illinois Fighting Illini, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Chicago Bears. He grew up in Los Angeles, went to college in Champaign, Illinois, and now lives in Chicago- so his teams and allegiances lie in the West coast and now in the midwest. He loves history and travel, and that is what gravitated him towards covering soccer. He visited the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, Camp Nou in Barcelona, and the Emirates Stadium in North London, and toured all three. He admires the traditions, spirit, and patronage of soccer fans, and he hopes to represent and inform them in the best of ways as he covers the sport.
