He played professionally for Columbus Crew, Chicago Fire, and Fulham and earned 96 caps in international competition. He currently serves on PCA's National Advisory Board, is an ESPN analyst, and is a co-founder and CSO of Tipevo , which is focused on bringing a first of its kind digital platform to transform the entire youth sports experience.

McBride talks about the importance of kids doing something they’re passionate about while growing up. He says that this activity doesn’t have to be sports, it can be art, or anything else, but whats so valuable and enjoyable is children having the ability to be in an environment where they can be passionate about something.
