The National Premier Soccer League Friday announced its support to former U.S. international striker Eric Wynalda in his quest to become president of the U.S. Soccer Federation.
“The NPSL board of directors, serving on behalf of its members across the country, has elected to publicly support Eric Wynalda for U.S. Soccer Federation president,” the league said in a statement on its website. “Following that, the NPSL intends to cast the four votes allocated to the NPSL in the upcoming U.S. Soccer Federation presidential election for Eric Wynalda.”
Wynalda is one of eight candidates running.
The other seven include three other former U.S. national team players — Paul Caligiuri, Kyle Martino and Hope Solo, U.S. Soccer vice president Carlos Cordeiro, Soccer United Marketing president Kathy Carter, Boston attorney Steven Gans and New York lawyer Michael Winograd.
The election will be held at the USSF Annual General Meeting in Orlando, Fla. Feb. 10.
