One of our favorite things about soccer is how it connects people from all walks of life in a fun and meaningful way. It’s not just a game - it’s the world’s game; it’s our game. Whether you’re a player, a coach, a parent, or a fan, we all have a connection to the game and we all have a story to tell.
To help celebrate our 20th anniversary, we’re sharing 20 of our favorite soccer stories from 20 individuals who have made a significant impact on the game or who have been impacted by the game in a positive way. Some of these individuals – like Grant Wahl and Cobi Jones –have an obvious connection to the game; others – like Shellie Pfohl of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition – may be a bit surprising, but together, they show the universal nature of the beautiful game and capture our shared love and respect for the sport.
Together, We Are Soccer.
