[U.S. SOCCER] Sunil Gulati was re-elected as president of U.S. Soccer for a third four-year term by unanimous consent on Saturday at the federation's annual general meeting at the Marriott Marquis in New York.

Gulati again ran unopposed after having served as U.S. Soccer’s president since 2006. U.S. Soccer no longer has a restriction on the number of terms the president can serve.

Merritt Paulson, the owner of the Portland Timbers (MLS) and Portland Thorns (NWSL) and Arthur Mattson, president of the Florida State Soccer Association, replacing Kevin Payne and Richard Grofffrom the Professional and Adult Councils. University of Miami, president Donna Shalala was also re-elected as an Independent Director, while Eastern New York's Rocco Amoroso and USL founder Francisco Marcos were voted as life members.

“I’m honored to be granted the opportunity to serve our membership as president of the U.S. Soccer Federation,” said Gulati, who was elected to the FIFA executive committee in April 2013. “Over the years, soccer has made numerous strides in the U.S. and we are excited by the sport’s boundless potential for growth in the future. I’m looking forward to being part of soccer’s bright future on all levels throughout the country.”
