(Reuters) – US Soccer Federation (USSF) President Cindy Parlow Cone has been re-elected to another four-year term after defeating former President Carlos Cordeiro in a vote on Saturday.

Parlow Cone won 785.12 of the AGM weighted total votes, while Cordeiro won 698.26.

Cordeiro resigned under pressure two years ago after a court case was widely condemned as misogynistic, and the position was succeeded by Parlow Cone, a former international who was vice president of US soccer at the time.

“From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for this amazing support,” said Parlow Cone, 43. “To everyone who supported me and to everyone who supported my opponent, I say the same thing: the moment of division is now over.

“We are an association, we are a team. I promise to be the leader for all of US soccer. I have never been more excited and hopeful about the future of our beautiful game.

“Our national teams are young, exciting and promising. Our professional leagues are pioneers when it comes to pushing our sport forward.”

The United States, Canada and Mexico will host the 2026 Men’s World Cup, while Los Angeles will host the 2028 Summer Olympics.

The US could also bid to host the 2027 or 2031 Women’s World Cup.

“We’ll be hosting at least one World Cup soon and showing the world what we have to offer,” added Parlow Cone.

“Our moment is now and I promise each of you will have a friend and partner in me as President of US Soccer.”
