DiCicco named acting commissioner of WUSA
April 27th, 2000 12AM



Tony DiCicco will run the soccer side of the Women's United Soccer Association, at least until a permanent boss is found. The proposed women's professional league named the former U.S. women's national team coach as its acting commissioner and named Lee Berke its acting president. Berke had been the senior vice president of marketing for SFX Entertainment and The Marquee Group, which developed the U.S. women's indoor victory tour last fall. DiCicco and Berke had been working as consultants for the WUSA. Meanwhile, the WUSA retained Spencer Stuart, Inc., the global executive search firm, to search for a commissioner as well as a CEO. "This is a tremendous opportunity for women's soccer players throughout the world to play in what will be the premier league for women's soccer," DiCicco said. "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of what I feel will be the most exciting period ever for the women's game." The WUSA also announced the hiring of Katy Button, most recently a policy advisor to First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, as director of soccer operations for the Washington, D.C., market team; Joe Cummings, general manager of the Mass Pro Soccer/Boston Renegades, as general manager for the Boston area team; and Lynn Nicklaus Morgan, director of sales development for Cox Enterprises, as GM of Cox's Atlanta and San Diego area teams.
