The Fan Council meets quarterly in-person.  These meetings include: the AGM and other meetings as agreed to by the Fan Council and U.S. Soccer.

At the meetings, the Fan Council discusses governance issues with U.S. Soccer staff, learns about Federation policies, and reviews anticipated AGM discussion points, which may include: leadership elections, budgets, amendments, bylaws and more.

The Fan Council selects which of its participants will serve as the two (2) official voting Delegates at the AGM, and which will be Alternates.

Please note that U.S. Soccer covers registration costs for all AGM Delegates. Alternates will be responsible for the cost of their registration. Flights for quarterly meetings are covered by U.S. Soccer, but all other costs associated with attending these meetings are incurred by the representatives. The first Fan Council quarterly meeting with U.S. Soccer will be held at the AGM.

The 2024 AGM will take place in Dallas, TX from Thursday, February 8 - Sunday, February 11.
