U.S. Soccer retained Sally Q. Yates and King & Spalding in October 2021 to conduct an independent investigation into allegations of past abusive behavior and sexual misconduct in women’s professional soccer to gain a full understanding of the factors that allowed it to occur and to identify meaningful recommendations that will help prevent similar abuse and misconduct from taking place in the future. Yates and her team were given full autonomy, access and the necessary resources to follow the facts and evidence wherever they led.
U.S. Soccer has released the full findings and recommendations of this independent investigation.
