Nathán Goldberg for US Soccer VP

Who I Am



As a lifelong player who has worked and volunteered across US Soccer councils, I will listen to every voice, every member, and every state, acting as an advocate and ally for the grassroots and using my independence to represent all members.



As a Latino and proud first-generation American,

I speak multiple languages and understand the multicultural and global landscape of soccer, which will be essential to strengthen our relationships with Hispanic & Latino communities and as we host the world during major international tournaments.


Next Gen

As a member of the generation that will make soccer the preeminent sport in the United States, I have the energy and passion needed to make the most of the opportunities ahead and to help shape the future of soccer in America for the next generation.

My soccer experience includes...

  • Assistant General Manager & Chief Soccer Officer for Gotham FC, where I helped turn the team around from a league-worst record to winning the NWSL Championship

  • Special Assistant to two US Soccer Federation Presidents

  • Global Sports Fellow at the Harvard University Global Sports Initiative, conducting academic research into player wellbeing in women's soccer

Why I'm running.

The next five years will define the future of soccer in our country.


As we host a series of transformative international tournaments*, we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to grow the game and fundamentally transform the sport, from the grassroots to our National Team programs.


To make the most of this moment, US Soccer needs a Vice President who can unite the different factions of our membership after years of division, who can ensure every community is included in the growth of the game, and who can position the United States as a leader within the global football family. We need a forward thinker who can help shape the future of soccer in America to match our ambition.

*Copa America (2024), Club World Cup (2025), Men’s World Cup (2026), Women’s World Cup (2027 bid), and the Olympic Games (2028).

My Vision


Uniting the Membership.

I've traveled the country in the name of soccer, listening to our members tell me about their shared goals and unique challenges. As VP, I will leverage my independence and continue to strengthen those relationships to build bridges across our councils, making sure all members are heard and included.


Breaking Down Barriers.

Soccer in America is increasingly diverse and global, yet our leadership does not reflect the full breadth of communities that play our sport, hindering our ability to reach them and serve them. As VP, I will use my multicultural background and multilingual skills to break down barriers and act as an ambassador for the game, both at home and abroad.


Seizing the Future.

Young players, fans, coaches, and referees are the future of US Soccer. I’m certain that our Federation’s best days are ahead of us, but we must be willing to innovate, modernize, and think outside the box to embrace the future of soccer together. As VP, I will bring a new perspective and fresh energy to the table, setting us up for long-term success.

Get to know me.

Born and raised in Mexico City, I knew I loved soccer before I knew much else. That passion has shaped my life: I moved to Austin, Texas as young teenager to attend a high school with a soccer academy; I walked on to the Harvard D1 varsity team as a freshman and graduated as the captain; and I’ve worked professionally in a wide variety of soccer capacities. 

But the experience that has defined me the most was my time at the US Soccer Federation, where I served as Special Assistant to two Presidents: Cindy Parlow Cone and Carlos Cordeiro. I got a front row seat to learning about soccer in America — about our challenges, our strengths, our vast and varied membership, our incredible potential, and the people who make it all work. The highlight of my time at the Federation was building relationships with people across the country who love soccer just as much as I do and figuring out how I could help support them in their work advancing the game.

That drive — to grow the game, together — shapes everything I do. As a young, multicultural, and multilingual soccer fan, player, and executive, I have an optimistic vision for the future of soccer in America, and I’m excited to work toward it hand in hand with our members. As VP, I will dedicate my efforts, passion, and experience to growing the game at home across all levels, cementing US Soccer as an international leader, and strengthening the Federation organizationally to better serve all members. 

Stay up to date.

Welcome aboard!
