Welcome to Soccermodo!

Hi there! My name is Miguel and I’m from Portugal — yeah, Cristiano Ronaldo’s home country! — where everyone is literally CRAZY about football (as Europeans call it). Obviously, I’m no exception!

I’ve been playing the beautiful game since a very young age and even got the lucky break to attend practice at the most famous soccer club in Portugal, S.L. Benfica. I’m honored to say that I, totally unexpectedly, got to shake hands with club’s brightest star, one of the biggest legends in the sport, Eusébio, one time!

I also love going to the Estádio da Luz whenever there’s a Benfica home game or watch other team’s matches on TV.

Now that I’m older and I’m in it just to have fun, stay fit and participate in some local tournaments, I’ve become more demanding of the things I wear and use while playing to enjoy it to a much higher extent which has increasingly developed my interest in the topic of soccer gear over time.

All of this combined with my love for sharing my findings with people is the reason why this blog exists today.

My mission is to help you find the best, most comfortable gear so you can put your entire focus entirely on the game itself and reach new heights!

How Content Is Created Here

Let’s be honest here. This blog is my baby — meaning that literally everything you’ll find here has been carefully planned, edited and reviewed before going live to the public.

To help me create some of the content, I do hire freelance writers, but nothing — and I mean, NOTHING — is published here before I obsessively read, analyze and confirm/correct everything (and, when needed, completely rewrite some bits). I’m that rigorous.

That’s how much I care about the accuracy of the content we produce and about you, our readers.

Although we’ve had a few brands sending in their items for us to test them (which doesn’t influence our analysis either way, mind you), it’s not always possible to get and check everything with our own eyes and that’s why we spend an enormous amount of time researching and getting online feedback from confirmed buyers of the items being reviewed.

And, since I live super close to a soccer stadium and a behemoth of a shopping mall, I have quick and easy access to some of the best soccer gear stores around.

That’s where you can usually find me spending time and bothering their staff with my endless questions about the all new items that have just been launched in order to find the right ones to offer as interesting suggestions.

At the end of the day, my intention is to create and maintain an online resource that you can trust, something that wasn’t created for the sole purpose of promoting this or that brand/product, so that you’ll be better equipped to make conscious and well-informed decisions when it comes to finding the best quality and most comfortable soccer gear without breaking the bank.

Focus on the Game Itself and Nothing Else

Looking to get better at soccer (be it playing or coaching) is already hard enough by itself to still have to spend your energy considering other details.

Wearing stuff that doesn’t fit nicely, made from poor materials that aren’t worth their price or wasting hours looking for the right gear will just keep you distracted from what you should really be paying attention to.

Spend more time practicing and improving your soccer skills and worry less about your gear. We’ll take care of that for you!

At Soccermodo, we spend our days testing the latest balls, cleats and gear to create truthful and thorough reviews so that you can reach new heights in your game without going overboard with your spending.

Why? Because we want you to focus on the game itself and nothing else.
