Six individuals – five former players and a referee – have been elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame, it was announced on Sunday night.

The players, all former U.S. internationals, were voted in on the player and veterans ballot.

Former U.S. women’s national team standout goalkeeper Hope Solo and midfielder Shannon Boxx, U.S. men’s national team midfielder-forward Clint Dempsey received the most votes on the Players Ballot.

One-time USWNT defender Linda Hamilton and D.C. United Marco Etcheverry were chosen on the Veterans Ballot.

Esse Baharmast, a former FIFA referee and instructor, was voted in via the Builders Ballot.

They will be inducted into the NSHOF at ceremonies at the Hall in Frisco, Texas on Saturday, May 21.

A forward who was one of the best goal scorers in U.S. national team history, Dempsey played 141 games for the USMNT and nine seasons in MLS, with two Best XI selections. When he retired, Dempsey was tied with Landon Donovan as the nation’s all-time leading scorer with 57 international goals, including goals in three World Cups, a Confederations Cup, a Copa America and four CONCACAF Gold Cups. He was elected in his first year of eligibility.

Solo played 202 full internationals as goalkeeper for the USWNT between 2000 and 2016, winning two Olympic gold medals and a Women’s World Cup championship. She won the Golden Glove, awarded by FIFA, as the outstanding goalkeeper at the 2011 and 2015 Women’s World Cups.

A midfielder who made 195 appearances for the U.S. Women’s National Team between 2003 and 2015, Boxx won three Olympic championships and one World Cup. A two-time postseason Best XI selection, she is one of three women who played in all three seasons of the Women’s United Soccer Association, all three seasons of Women’s Professional Soccer and the first three seasons of the National Women’s Soccer League.

Hamilton, one of two candidates elected from the Veteran ballot, played 71 full internationals for the U.S. between 1987 and 1995. She was a key defender on the U.S. team that won the first Women’s World Cup in 1991 and played in the 1995 World Cup tournament.

Etcheverry was born in Bolivia and played eight seasons in Major League Soccer between 1996 and 2003, all of them with D.C. United. He was a four-time Best XI selection, a three-time MLS champion and the league’s most valuable player in 1998.

Baharmast was a FIFA international referee for six years. He officiated two games at the 1998 World Cup, three at the 1996 Olympic Games, one at the 1997 Copa America and five at the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 1996 and 1998. A former MLS and MISL referee, he served as the U.S. Soccer Federation’s director of officials for 11 years.

The National Soccer Hall of Fame voting committee determined the 2022 class after changes to the election and eligibility process raised the maximum number of inductees from four to six. The update made it possible for a third candidate from the Player ballot and a second candidate from the Veteran ballot to be elected if they are named to at least 75% of the ballots.
