- Do you have a desire to cover the United States Men's National Team and want to write about the USMNT?

- Harrisburg City Islanders reporter/columnist:
- Are you able to attend games?
- Do you enjoy USL PRO soccer?
- Are you willing to possibly attend games as a credentialed employee of BG instead of as a fan?
- General writers (Union related):
- Are you able to attend games (this doesn't affect your status on the 'application')?
- Do you follow the Union closely?
- How much free time do you have?
- Can you separate your fandom from your writing (doesn't mean you can't express opinion when warranted)?
