U.S. Soccer kicks off 100th anniversary events

[CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION] U.S. Soccer has launched on its Web site a series commemorating significant moments in its history as part of its 100-year celebration.

The series on ussoccer.com includes a look back at 100 moments over the last 100 years and a where-are-they-now series on former men's and women's players.

The first article in the series on significant moments is the original Soccer Bowl, the first unofficial college national championship that pitted University of San Francisco against Penn State Jan. 1, 1950, at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis. The where-are-they-now series begins with Ante Razov and Linda Hamilton. The first "Hidden Cap" subject: Bruce Arena.

The centennial celebration will also include the creation of a commemorative book featuring articles, interviews and photos from U.S. Soccer’s archives and several grassroots activities.

The 100-year celebration will also include a yet-to-be-announced USA-Germany match June 2 in the Washington area.
