U.S. Soccer Fan Council
The U.S. Soccer Fan Council was created in 2018 as a way to give fans a voice in the Federation’s governance. The Council is dedicated to advocating for all fans of teams under the U.S. Soccer umbrella and aims to increase its outreach and exposure to the U.S. Soccer community, including the affiliated councils and organizations.
The Fan Council works closely with U.S. Soccer, meeting quarterly in-person and/or via teleconference. The application to become a fan representative is open to all U.S. Soccer Premium Insiders and above, who are the most dedicated supporters from across the country. Insiders will be made aware when the next election will take place.
Two members of the five-member Council are voted as Chairperson and Co-Chairperson. Additionally, two members are selected each year to serve as voting representatives on the National Council, voting on issues of Federation governance such as:
The election of U.S. Soccer President and Vice President;
Approval of U.S. Soccer budgets;
The adoption of amendments to the articles of incorporation and bylaws of U.S. Soccer;
Affirming the policies approved by the Board of Directors for the past year.
All fans have the ability to support the growth of soccer and be a part of the Federation’s mission to make soccer, in all its forms, the preeminent sport in the United States. If you would like to contact the Fan Council email us at: email@example.com. We would love to hear from you.
