Amanda Duffy is out as National Women’s Soccer League president.
Duffy will resign from her post on Feb. 15, the league announced Tuesday.
She will continue her role with the league through mid-February and a commissioner will be named upon completion of a search process by Nolan Partners.
Duffy will remain in the league as executive vice president of Orlando Pride as she will head all operations – front office and technical – reporting directly to Orlando City SC CEO Alex Leitão and representing the Pride on the NWSL board.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of the growth and development of the NWSL,” Duffy said in a statement. “The league has made significant strides over the last three years and I look forward to its continued development as the global destination for our world class athletes and passionate fans.”
In 2017, Duffy joined the NWSL as managing director of operations and became managing director the next year. She was named NWSL president in January 2019.
“We thank Amanda for all of her efforts on behalf of the NWSL over the past three years and are pleased that she will continue to play an important part in the league in her new role with the Orlando Pride,” said NWSL executive committee chair and North Carolina Courage owner Steve Malik said in a statement. “We will continue to build upon Amanda’s work of elevating the league’s footprint – competitively and commercially – as the league cements its position as the global leader in women’s soccer.”
