''The last four years have been remarkable,'' said Contiguglia, 60, who begins his second four-year term immediately. ''We have concentrated our efforts on servicing our membership, increasing communication and solidifying the business structure of U.S. Soccer so that our entire organization could better benefit from player development and our groundbreaking international performances on the field. While we have made significant progress in four years, there is still much to accomplish.''
In 1998, Contiguglia defeated Larry Monaco in the election for his first term. From 1990 through 1996 he served as chairman of the United States Youth Soccer Association.
