Streaming Live exclusively on GotSoccer.com at 2:45pm EST on Saturday 11th November, the forum promises to be an intriguing event with five of the seven candidates that have confirmed their intention to run for President of U.S. Soccer in attendance.
The USMNT team will not be participating at the World Cup next year for the first time since 1986, after a 2-1 defeat away to Trinidad and Tobago a month ago. That loss away to a country with a population smaller than San Diego’s resulted in the resignation of head coach Bruce Arena, and pressure on Sunil Gulati to follow suit. With Gulati’s third term in charge of U.S. Soccer due to expire in February, challengers have already emerged to his leadership, and for the first time ever the Columbia University economics professor will face a contested election should he choose to stand.
Seven candidates have already announced their intention to stand for election in February, and of those seven, five – Paul Caligiuri, Steve Gans, Paul Lapointe, Mike Winograd and Eric Wynalda – will present their case for why they should be the President of U.S. Soccer at the GotSoccer/GotPro annual Winter Convention.
The forum will begin at 2:45pm EST and will be streamed live exclusively on GotSoccer.com
