U.S. Soccer Federation gives its president a salary

DALLAS (AP) — The U.S. Soccer Federation is making its president a paid position, adopting the change on the third try. The federation’s national council approved a bylaw change Saturday at the USSF’s annual general meeting that gives the governing body’s president a $150,000 annual stipend, which would be reduced to $75,000 if the person gains another position within soccer resulting from the role as USSF president. Similar proposals in 2022 and 2023 failed to gain the necessary two-third vote for adoption.
