Angel City FC, the first-year NWSL team, has promoted Angela Hucles Mangano to general manager.
It is what ACFC described in a release as an "evolved role," moving her from her current position as vice president of player development and operations to one overseeing coaching and all aspects of the first team.
Eniola Aluko, the sporting director, will take on the new role of director of recruitment. She previously oversaw player and technical staff development.
Angel City is in seventh place, two points below the playoff line, in the 12-team NWSL. It leads the league in attendance with an average of almost 15,000 fans a game.
“From the moment Angela joined Angel City last year," said Julie Uhrman, ACFC's founder and president," she has been a force across our organization, bringing her ‘whole athlete’ mentality to the sporting business, the front office, and our community. She is an incredible, inspiring leader who pushes us to be better, go farther, and do more. She understands what our players and coaching staff need to be successful and how we can make an authentic impact in our community."
Hucles Mangano is a two-time Olympic gold medalist with the USA and former president of the Women’s Sports Foundation and U.S. Soccer board member.
