U.S. Soccer Votes to Retain Cindy Parlow Cone as President

March 5, 2022

U.S. Soccer is staying the course, voting to keep Cindy Parlow Cone as president at the organization’s annual general meeting in Atlanta.

Parlow Cone, the first woman president in U.S. Soccer Federation history, won the vote of the membership over Carlos Cordeiro, whom she replaced in the job in March of 2020. The contentious election highlighted rifts in the sport’s national governing body, which Parlow Cone immediately sought to mend.
