[U.S. SOCCER] Sunil Gulati was unanimously re-elected to a second four-year term as U.S. Soccer president on Saturday at the organization's Annual General Meeting.

 

Gulati, who rose from the ranks as a youth team administrator to run the U.S. national team program when it took off in the late 1980s, became a key figure in the organization of the 1994 World Cup in the United States and was instrumental in the launch of MLS in 1996, faces the biggest challenge of his soccer career in 2010.

 

Gulati is the chairman of the USA Bid Committee, which is seeking to bring the World Cup to the United States again in 2018 or 2022.

 

FIFA's executive committee will picks the 2018 and 2022 hosts in December 2010.

 

The United States certainly has the stadiums, infrastructure and organization, but it faces a tough race from several non-European bidders, most notably Australia.

 

Gulati has for many years taught economics at Columbia University.
