Kyle Martino, former Beachside, MLS and USMNT player, announced Monday, November 6, 2017, that he is throwing his hat in the ring for the United States Soccer Federation presidency–the first contested election since Sunil Gulati took over in ’06.
Martino, 36, is on hiatus from NBC Sports where he was a studio analyst for the English Premier League. Martino launched Everyone’s Game USA to detail his candidacy, where his foundation is based on three simple words: TRANSPARENCY. EQUALITY. PROGRESS. His letters of recommendation can be found on his website with Mickey Kydes, Thierry Henry, and David Beckham all backing him.
Martino says he’d resign if the U.S. failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup or missed the quarterfinals of the 2026 World Cup.
“It’s time to put soccer back at the center of the United States Soccer Federation.”
