Voice of NFL Films Did Soccer Too

Remembering John Facenda:  He died September 26, 1984, 30 years ago.  This post is dedicated to Facenda.  It was originally published on this site in August of 2011.

The late John Facenda, who many people recognize from his iconic work for NFL Films, also broadcasted Soccer.  His voice is synonymous with drama.  He can be listened to in the video above.

The match he is narrating is between the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Miami Toros of the NASL in 1975.

The clip above is from Facenda's last piece of work with NFL Films, Super Bowl XVII.
