Carlos Cordeiro elected new US Soccer president

Carlos Cordeiro elected new US Soccer president

Carlos Cordeiro was elected president of the U.S. Soccer Federation on Saturday, assuming control of an organization that must chart a new course after its men's team failed to qualify for this year's World Cup. Michael Winograd and Steve Gans dropped out after round two.

For the first time since 2006, there will be a new U.S. Soccer president.

Cordeiro, however, said he was the only candidate with the experience and plan to "hit the ground running on day and deliver the change we need".

Caligiuri withdrew from the process after the round after polling just 0.5 per cent.

Cordeiro has held several positions within U.S. Soccer, including treasurer, director of the U.S. Soccer Foundation and chair of the budget committee.

The second ballot saw Cordeiro pull further clear by securing 41.8 per cent to Carter's 33.3, with Wynalda a distant third on 10.8 per cent. Winograd and Gans bowed out after the second ballot, leaving Wynalda (10.8), Martino (10.2) and Solo (1.5) in the race with Cordeiro and Carter.

Cordeiro won with 68.6 percent on the third ballot. To those of you who didn't vote for me, I'm going to work to earn your support and trust over the next four years.

"Thank you to those of you who have supported me today", Cordeiro said. I promise you I'm going to work together with all of you to bring us together as one united soccer community. As Vice President since 2016, he worked to reform Board governance with a focus on greater transparency and accountability.

That's lead many fans to support ex-USMNT stars Kyle Martino and Eric Wynalda, two candidates campaigning on changing the status quo in U.S. Soccer.

He revealed at the beginning of December that his current term would be his last. The 16-year veteran of the national team reiterated sentiments she'd expressed in a complaint to the United States Olympic Committee, that the federation has patently its objective grow the game at every level.

Gulati was blamed in some circles within the sport in the country for America being unable to secure a spot at the 2018 tournament, the first not to feature the nation since 1986. But almost all of the backlash during this election towards U.S. Soccer, aside from the women's national team deserving equal pay, is because of one thing: the men's national team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. While candidates like Martino had big, ambitious and intriguing visions, Cordeiro is more of the "status quo", which for quite a while in U.S. Soccer has been good enough to get to a World Cup and potentially move on.
