[AWARDS] U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulatijoined a select group of individuals to be given an Honorary All-America award by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Gulati has more than 30 years of experience at all levels of American soccer. He is the architect the U.S. national team program as we know it today and was a key player as deputy commissioner in the launch of Major League Soccer, signing all the players for its launch in 1996.

“I cannot think of anyone who has given more selflessly to the advancement of American soccer than Sunil Gulati,” said NSCAA CEO and Executive Director Joe Cummings.

He became U.S. Soccer’s president in 2006 and was unanimously re-elected to a second term in 2010. He has served on the bid committees for two FIFA World Cups, including the successful bid to host the 1994 event.

The NSCAA Honorary All-America award is presented to those who have brought particular distinction to soccer through their efforts within and beyond the boundaries of the sport. Among past recipients are MLS owner/investor Lamar Hunt, Soccer America founder Clay Berling, Special Olympics founder Eunice KennedyShriver, comedian Jon Stewart, two U.S. astronauts and soccer legend Pele.
