Founded in 1913, U.S. Soccer was one of the world’s first organizations to be affiliated with FIFA. U.S. Soccer has continued to grow in the 91 years since, and now has the largest membership among U.S. Olympic Committee national governing bodies.
Used to be known as the U.S. Football Association, U.S. Soccer’s name was changed to the United States Soccer Football Association in 1945 and then to its present name in 1974. As the governing body of soccer in the United States, U.S. Soccer has helped chart the course for the sport in the USA for 90 years. Its main goals include making soccer, in all its forms, a preeminent sport in the United States and to continue the development of soccer at all recreational and competitive levels.
