Hope Solo running for President of US Soccer

"The time for talking is over", wrote Solo, who has been traveling internationally and discussing leadership issues.

Other candidates in the election to be held in February are former national team players Paul Caligiuri, Eric Wynalda and Kyle Martino as well as USSF vice president Carlos Cordeiro, Boston lawyer Steve Gans, New York lawyer Michael Winograd and Paul LaPointe, Northeast Conference manager of the United Premier Soccer League.

Solo announced her candidacy on Twitter and FaceBook with a message about her family's struggles with the money required for young people in the United States to participate in top-level youth soccer programs and questions about the financial dealings of USSF.

"I'm going to spend a lot of time over the next six months trying to win an election - and that election is to bring the 2026 World Cup here", said Gulati, who is also the chairman of the joint USA/Canada/Mexico bid for the 2026 World Cup.

She was suspended from the team shortly thereafter and has not returned. The USA lost to Brazil, 4-0. The case was first dismissed and later reinstated as appeals continued over procedural issues related to the lack of cooperation of Obert and Obert's son. It comes less than a week after current U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said he will not seek a fourth term.

After the USWNT's failure at the 2016 Summer Olympics, Solo called Sweden's team "cowards" and was then terminated, and she has been quiet for her standards since then.

She criticized the U.S. Soccer Federation's conduct during a labor dispute with the women's national team as "historical, immoral and unconscionable".
