US Soccer Vice President Carlos Cordeiro Elected to Top Spot

Carlos Cordeiro was elected as the 32nd president of the U.S. Soccer Federation on Saturday afternoon during the organization's annual meeting in Orlando.

The election was contested between eight candidates. Soccer analysts Kyle Martino and Eric Wynalda netted 10.6 and 8.9 percent of the third-ballot vote, respectively.

Boston-based lawyer Steve Gans and New Jersey attorney Michael Winograd also stood for the position.

The vice-president of the federation will move into the top role after three rounds of voting with 68.6 percent of the vote saw him win the USSF presidential election, with Soccer United Marketing president Kathy Carter finishing closest runner-up.

Cordeiro and Carter received the top two totals of the first round, with Cordeiro receiving 36.3 percent of the votes and Carter 34.6 percent.

The second round of voting saw Cordeiro inch up to 41.8 percent of the vote, while Carter dropped slightly to 33.3 percent.

Gans and Winograd then withdrew.

In the third round, Cordeiro pulled away, drawing on Carter's support as she fell to 10.6 percent of the vote.

"To those who didn't support me, I'm going to work to earn your support and your trust over the next four years", he said. I promise you I'm going to work with all of you to bring us together as one united soccer community.

A former Goldman Sachs executive, Cordeiro has held several roles with U.S. Soccer, including vice president, treasurer, chairman of the Budget Committee and director of the U.S. Soccer Foundation.

He has been credited with working to reform governance with a focus on greater transparency and accountability.

Solo cited earning $40,000 less than than USMNT goalkeeper Tim Howard in 2008 despite playing 15 more games and winning the World Cup and winning league keeper of the year honors when Howard didn't win anything, approves unequal playing conditions and pay among the men's women's professional ranks as evidence of the federation/s ineptitude under Cordeiro.

The vote took place at U.S. Soccer's annual general meeting, which is normally a staid affair with little-to-no interest outside the state associations, youth and adult soccer programs and former players who make up the electorate.

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. Cordeiro has said he wants the U.S.to host the World Cup in 2026 as part of a joint bid with Mexico and Canada. He spent 30 years as a business executive with experience in global finance.
