About Mike Norman

Hi, I'm Mike and I might just be the biggest soccer fan you will find. I have been playing since I was a kid and come from a family of football fanatics. I play at least 4 times a week with my local team and have done a great deal of research into the sport. I have been fortunate enough to visit some of the biggest and best stadiums in several countries now.

I am always looking for ways to develop my sports knowledge and overall approach to health and fitness. For example, a few years back I took a soccer refereeing course to give me a deeper understanding of not only the rules of the game but also the mentality of the players, audience and referees themselves.

I (along with the rest of the Sportarly team) get to write about my biggest passion, sports, each and every day. I post buyers guides, how-to's, sports news and more and love doing so. I don't just offer my own opinions though. When writing my pieces, I seek out opinions from expert coaches, veteran players and anyone who could offer some insight into the game (including research/journal articles and statistics published by some of the top brands around).
