Read a post related to the event

Elected U.S. Soccer President in 2006 and re-elected in 2010, Sunil Gulati has more than 30 years of experience at all levels of soccer in the United States and has helped the sport rise to new heights. The native of Allahabad, India, has played an important role in the development of U.S. Soccer since the early 1980’s and has been intimately involved in the rise of the U.S. National Teams to prominence.

Gulati served on the bid committee for the 1994 FIFA World Cup and chaired the U.S. bid efforts for the 2022 World Cup. Additionally, Gulati served on the Board of Directors of FIFA Women’s World Cup USA 1999 and 2003. Currently, Gulati is a member of the Board of Directors for the U.S. Soccer Foundation, serves on the CONCACAF Executive Committee and represents U.S. Soccer as Chairman of CONCACAF Gold Cup and Referee Committees.

At the FIFA level, Gulati has served on various committees and task forces and was more recently named to the newly formed Independent Governance Committee, a group which provides recommendations for governance changes within the FIFA structure.

As a highly regarded senior lecturer in the economics department at Columbia University, Gulati balances his academic work with numerous responsibilities within the sport worldwide. He served on the Columbia Economics Faculty from 1986 to 1990 before joining the World Bank through its Young Professionals Program in 1991 and serving as a country economist for the emerging country of Moldova. He rejoined the Columbia faculty on a full time basis in 2003.
