US Soccer Federation
United States Soccer Federation - Founded 1913 
FIFA Affiliated 1914; CONCACAF Affiliated 1961 
 
 
As the governing body of soccer in all forms and at all levels in the United 
States, U.S. Soccer has played an integral role in charting the course for the sport 
for more than 100 years. In that time, the federation’s mission statement has 
been clear and simple: To make soccer, in all its forms, a preeminent sport in the 
United States and to continue the development of soccer at all recreational and 
competitive levels. 
  In 1989, the U.S. men’s national team had not played in a World Cup in almost 
40 years and the U.S. women’s program was in its early stages. U.S. Soccer was 
hosting games in small stadiums it could not fill, few matches were televised, 
soccer stadiums were not even in the blueprint stage, and there were no high-
level professional outdoor leagues. Since that time, the state of soccer in the U.S. 
has been transformed.
  In Brazil in 2014, the men’s national team competed in its seventh consecutive 
FIFA World Cup. The team progressed to the Round of 16 for the second straight 
tournament. 
  U.S. Soccer is a world leader at every level of the women’s game. The American 
women have won three FIFA Women’s World Cups (1991, 1999 and 2015) and 
four Olympic gold medals (1996, 2004, 2008 and 2012) – an accomplishment 
unmatched, men or women, in Olympic competition. The United States has also 
hosted three wildly successful World Cups (men in 1994; women in 1999 and 
2003) with the support of its members and anchored by strong organizational 
abilities. 
  U.S. Soccer continues to support the development of referees in CONCACAF, 
with a reinvigorated focus on education and training, including the care and 
nurturing of professional referees. In 2012, the Professional Referee Organization 
was created to manage the referee programs and to increase the quality of 
younger officials in professional leagues in the U.S. and Canada. The top referees 
are considered for FIFA competitions.

NASL & Lamar Hunt
U.S. Open Cup
   NASL teams have competed in the 
Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup since 2012, 
having sent teams to the quarterfinals in 
two separate years.
   After four seasons of competing, NASL 
teams have outscored their opposition 
98-91 in 59 games, while posting a 
27W-5D-27L record, including 14 
shutouts.
   The Carolina RailHawks have had the 
most success, reaching the quarterfinals 
in 2013 and 2014. Brian Shriver, who 
recently returned to the RailHawks ahead 
of the 2016 Spring Season, leads all NASL 
players in goals in the competition with 
six. The Atlanta Silverbacks also reached 
the quarterfinals in 2014.
   The Cup has helped to foster rivalries for NASL teams, regardless of league 
affiliation. The RailHawks knocked out the Los Angeles Galaxy of MLS three 
years in a row from 2012-14. The New York Cosmos have ousted a New York 
metropolitan area MLS side in back-to-back years. Last year the Cosmos defeated 
New York City FC of MLS in a penalty-kick shootout before 11,446 at Shuart 
Stadium in Hempstead, N.Y., the biggest turnout involving an NASL team in the 
tournament. 
   Played annually since 1914, the Open Cup (a single-elimination tournament 
open to all affiliated amateur and professional teams) is the oldest cup 
competition in the United States. The Open Cup winner qualifies as one of the 
four U.S. teams for the CONCACAF Champions League.

Canada Soccer Association
Canada Soccer Association 
Founded: 1912 
FIFA Affiliated: 1913 
CONCACAF Affiliated: 1961 
 
 
In Canada, the sport is governed by the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA),

  There are nearly 850,000 registered Canada Soccer members in 1,500 
clubs across the 144 districts that operate in 12 provincial/territorial member 
associations. The CSA also has five National Training Centers – British Columbia, 
Prairies, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic.
  After its first (and only) qualification for a FIFA World Cup (Mexico 1986), 
Canada has gone on to stage five FIFA tournaments: U-17 World Cup (1987), 
U-20 Women’s World Cup (2002), U-20 World Cup (2007), U-20 Women’s 
World Cup (2014) and the Women’s World Cup (2015).
  Canada’s national teams have won nine confederation championships. The 
men’s national team has won the CONCACAF Men’s Championship (1985) 
and the CONCACAF Gold Cup (2000); Canada’s women’s team has won the 
CONCACAF Women’s Championship (1998 and 2010). The men’s youth team 
won the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship (1986 and 1996), while the 
women’s youth team won the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship (2004 
and 2008) and the CONCACAF Women’s U-17 Championship (2010).

NASL & Amway
Canadian Championship
  FC Edmonton first entered the competition in 2011 and was joined by Ottawa 
Fury FC in 2014. The NASL sides compete against three MLS teams – Vancouver 
Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact, and Toronto FC – for the right to be the 
champion of Canada.
  The Eddies have come closest to reaching the final in recent years, but have 
fallen just short in the past two years after conceding late goals to the Impact 
(2014) and Whitecaps (2015). The Eddies’ Tomi Ameobi is currently the top 
scorer in the competition with five goals. 
  The Amway Canadian Championship has been held annually since 2008 and 
the winner of the competition qualifies for the CONCACAF Champions League.

Federation
Federación Puertorriqueña de Fútbol

  The Federación Puertorriqueña de Fútbol (FPF) was founded in 1940 and 
admitted to FIFA in 1960.
  Its mission is to grow soccer on the island at all levels while promoting values, 
therefore creating a legacy and a solid base for future generations.
  The Puerto Rican national teams are active at the U-15, U-17, U-20, U-23, and 
senior levels for both men and women.
  Also, Puerto Rico was chosen by FIFA as the trial base for FIFA 11, a program 
that was extremely successful, and now, the FPF staff has been granted the 
responsibility of growing and cultivating it around the region..

CONCACAF
Confederation Of North, Central America 
and Caribbean Association Football 
Founded: 1940 
FIFA Affiliated: 1940
 
 
  The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association 
Football (CONCACAF) is the sport’s governing body in the region, and one of 
six continental confederations that administer the sport along with FIFA, the 
world governing body. It has 41 member associations through offices located in 
Miami, New York, Guatemala City, and the Cayman Islands, and is composed 
of a Congress, Executive Committee, General Secretariat, and several other 
committees. 
  CONCACAF – formed in 1961 from the merger of the Football Confederation 
of Central America and the Caribbean (CCCF) and the North American Football 
Confederation (NAFC) – consists of three sub-regions: North America (three 
countries), Central America (seven countries under the regional entity Unión 
Centroamericana de Fútbol - UNCAF), and the Caribbean (31 countries under the 
regional entity Caribbean Football Union - CFU).
  At the CONCACAF Ordinary Congress held on April 19, 2013, in Panama City
Panama, five national associations that previously held associate member status 
– French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Maarten – became 
full members. The island of Bonaire was accepted by the Congress as an associate 
member.
  As the administrative body for the region, CONCACAF manages competitions, 
offers technical and administrative training courses, while also actively 
promoting and developing the game.
  The biennial Gold Cup for full national teams and the annual Scotiabank 
Champions League for club teams are CONCACAF’s most visible competitions. 
The confederation organizes championships at the U-17 and U-20 levels for 
men and women that lead to direct qualification for FIFA competitions. It also 
supports FIFA in coordinating qualifying tournaments for the World Cup, the 
Women’s World Cup and Olympic Games, and also the Beach Soccer and Futsal 
World Cups.
