The official, definitive, and unique celebration of a
century of achievement in U.S. soccer. With one of the
fastest-growing domestic leagues in the world and national
teams asserting their presence on an international stage—and
the U.S. womens’ team taking the gold medal at the London
2012 Olympic games—American soccer is at a peak. Opening its
archives for the first time, the U.S. Soccer Federation
takes us on a visual journey, from the introduction of the
beautiful game a century ago in the amateur leagues of towns
in the industrial northeast to soccer’s dominance as the
fastest-growing sport across America today. This book is
illustrated with remarkable and rarely seen mementos, from
vintage portraits of the first national teams in the 1920s
to game programs, ticket stubs, jerseys, and exciting
pictures of today’s and past stars in action. With
contributions from stars spanning generations of American
soccer, including firsthand testimonies from coaches and
players themselves, the book profiles the most talented
players of the men’s and women’s national teams over the
decades, looks at the coaches who have changed the game,
celebrates the most memorable moments and unforgettable
goals, and chronicles the U.S.’s greatest achievements, from
the World Cup to the Olympics.
