Yesterday, in an official statement, the NASL announced its support for USSF canidate Eric Wynalda. NASL intern commissioner Rishi Sehgal said the following about Wynalda:
This announcement was for the most part expected, as NASL owners Rocco Commisso and Ricardo Silva have shown support for Wynalda in the past. Wynalda revealed to Sports Illustrated that Silva is in part financially backing his campaign, but Rocco Commisso is not.
I’m in complete favor of pro/rel. -you should know that - but if you need verification publicly - here you go. By the way- there are many you say it to be trendy but I am one of the very few who understand it, can explain it, lived it and endorse it https://t.co/k6TmM6TqNr— Eric Wynalda (@EricWynalda) November 29, 2017
Eric Wynalda is in favor of promotion and relegation in the United States, and changing the US soccer schedule to match that of Europe’s, something the NASL is planning to do in 2018.
The USSF election takes place on February 10, 2018.
