Oliver Platt

Oliver Platt – Our ‘In-the-bubble’ Reporter & Analyst

Slowly coming to terms with his new nickname of ‘Bubble Boy’, Oliver is a OneSoccer reporter and analyst and will be taking you inside the bubble during the Canadian Premier League’s Island Games.

Originally from England, Oliver covered the English Premier League before returning for a second stint in Canada in 2015 — just in time for Toronto FC’s run to back-to-back MLS Cups. His goalscoring exploits in the Oakville Youth Soccer League are still talked about to this day but surprisingly did not draw interest from professional clubs.
