Carlos Cordeiro elected new president of US Soccer Federation

US Soccer presidential election live stream: How to watch online

Jeff Carlisle covers MLS and the USA national team for ESPN FC.

Cordeiro, born in 1956 to a Colombian mother and a Portuguese father, has served various roles with U.S. Soccer since being appointed as the federation's first independent director in 2007.

Cordeiro clinched election on the third ballot, where he easily eclipsed the 50 percent threshold, winning 69 percent of the vote.

Carlos Cordeiro will succeed Sunil Gulati as president of U.S. Soccer after being elected following three rounds of voting on Saturday at the organization's annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.

Well for one thing, US Soccer needs to elect a vice president. "I think we have an opportunity to really transform it into a No. 1 sport".

"I am a proud American, but I am an immigrant", said Cordeiro, 61. We knew they were going to be the top two candidates. Now, he's charged, among other things, with running the USA end of a bid with Mexico and Canada for the right to host the 2026 World Cup.

"Why are we so focused on the World Cup? So we all have to come together", Cordeiro said.

While the federation is in fine financial shape, Cordeiro will have to find ways to reinvigorate the men's national team program following the absence from the World Cup for the first time since 1986.

"I was a player for almost 20 years and I saw first hand what Carlos Cordeiro's idea of change is", Solo said in her speech. Both MLS and US Soccer, a non-profit organization, are in healthy financial positions due to their marketing arm. "It has to follow that process".

"I was impressed with his ideas, his vision for the governance within US soccer", said former World Cup midfielder Stuart Holden, a member of the Athletes Council, which voted as a bloc for Cordeiro.

In his speech before the vote, Cordeiro echoed that statement and pushed his platform of growing a grassroots movement and making the game more accessible for minorities and underprivileged children.

Solo's bid fell short as Cordeiro won the presidency, garnering almost 70 percent of the vote, but her message didn't fall on deaf ears.

"I went asleep last night not knowing what that outcome was", he said.

Weather warning for Northern Ireland of more snow and ice extended
Weather experts have issued the second severe weather warning this week for overnight tonight (Thurs) and into tomorrow morning. The forecaster is predicting scattered snow showers on Thursday night with accumulations of less than 3cm.

But we have to remember, U.S. Soccer is more than just the men's national team. All of them were not here today.

Part of that rebuilding should include some of the very people Cordeiro faced off against in the election.

One of the issues with the Athlete Council was that only 12 of the 20 members were delegates.

They agreed to vote as a bloc and to vote for Cordeiro. "And I think the membership has been engaged ... and I believe they'll make the right decision on Saturday with full knowledge of what the facts are".

As for how Cordeiro managed to build that support, he spent hours in small meetings with voters.

"Everyone was surprised about the Athletes Council", said Martino.

There is work to be done, and we'll see if Cordeiro can do it.

Female national team players have long advocated for equal pay, considering the group's resounding success.

Soccer is the most expensive sport for children to play - some US Soccer-affiliated teams charge $4,000 per season for players to take part - leaving talented youngsters priced out. But particularly among the six "outsiders", while I agreed with some candidates more than others, they all brought their heart and soul under unlikely circumstances into trying to be president.

That experience proved valuable as well, and gave voters a sense of comfort that Cordeiro would make changes at a moderate pace.

When asked why he's a better fit than the other seven candidates running, Cordeiro said he's "different" and "unique", before launching into a detailed explanation of his platform and how his experience sets him apart.

"It's not just national teams; it's a lot of stuff going on beneath the surface". "We need to be together".
