US Club Soccer to Host U.S. Soccer President Candidate Forum

28 Nov, 2017


US Club Soccer – a prominent member of the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) and the leading organization developing soccer clubs across America – will host a U.S. Soccer President Candidate Forum, Tuesday, Nov. 28 at the Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport Hotel in Chicago, Ill. 

Participants include:

Moderated by US Club Soccer CEO / Executive Director Kevin Payne with participation from Chairman Phil Wright and the US Club Soccer Board of Directors, this forum will help determine US Club Soccer’s recommendation and placement of votes in the upcoming presidential election. That election is slated for Feb. 10 in Orlando, Fla., during U.S. Soccer’s Annual General Meeting.
 
The debate will run from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CST. A variety of questions will be asked about player development, national team development and coaching issues, to name a few. Full audio recording will be available for download after its conclusion here.
 
“With millions of athletes playing soccer in the U.S., the Federation’s President has a critical role to play in shaping the future of the game with a defined roadmap for growth and success at the grassroots level through the professional ranks,” said Payne, one of the founders of Major League Soccer. “Each candidate brings unique qualifications to drive U.S. Soccer, and we look forward to exploring how our country can position itself as a global leader of the game, especially with the possibility as serving as one of the hosts for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.”
