Kate Abdo's first soccer memory came when her dad took her to Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium to cheer on his beloved team, Manchester United. “Much to my mom’s disgust,” says Kate with a laugh. Kate’s mother, you see, was rooting for Liverpool. Abdo wasn’t a diehard soccer fan until that day. “I didn’t feel hooked,” says the British native, “until I experienced a game live.”

These days, she experiences games live with her CBS and Paramount+ audience as the host of three of CBS Sports’ largest soccer properties. We caught up with Abdo by phone to ask her about her extraordinary soccer life.
