Parlow Cone to run unopposed for US Soccer vice-president

Cindy Parlow Cone is the lone candidate running to become vice-president of the US Soccer Federation after being the only person in the race to complete the nomination process.

The election takes place on February 16 at Scottsdale, Arizona, during US Soccer’s annual general meeting.

The position became vacant when Carlos Cordeiro was elevated to president in February. Parlow Cone will serve a one-year term, with a full four-year term to be decided in 2020.

Parlow Cone scored 75 goals in 158 international appearances for the US national team from 1995-2006, winning two Olympic gold medals and the 1999 Women’s World Cup. She was inducted this year into the US National Soccer Hall of Fame.
