A Look At World Selection Committee and Women’s Professional Soccer
The World Selection Committee is very active these days. Just last year they had chosen thirty-two teams for the World Selection Committee to represent the United States at the World Selection Committee annual meeting in Switzerland. Each year the World Selection Committee puts on a great show with the best coaches, stars and athletes from around the world. This year too we have a lot of stars from the NFL and College Football to choose from for the World Selection Committee. Some of the other teams that will be represented this year are the Australian School Football Association, Italian Ice Hockey Federation, Turkish Super League, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation, Canadian Football League and Welsh Assembly Football Conference.
Some of the other teams on the World Selection Committee are from various levels of athletics. There are football clubs from England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany and of course the United States. This is the twenty-first century and women’s football is very popular and in fact growing in popularity across the United States. Last year the Women’s National Association created their own team to compete in the Olympic Games. Of course this is the same National Association that represents the United States on the World Selection Committee.
The other team is from the United Kingdom. Their team is made up of senior players from the English football league, a top twenty player from the England women’s national league and a senior player from the England women’s international team. The team also has an executive coach from the Professional Services Coaching Association. It is interesting to see how professional women’s football is being represented this year in the Olympic games and the World Selection Committee knows that.
The United States women’s soccer team has only been to the Olympics once, in 2021 when they were runners up to Italy in the gold medal game. They have since improved drastically in all departments from the players and coaching positions to marketing, promotions and public relations. Now they are one of the largest organizations within the United States professional women’s leagues and have national sales organizations. The sales of soccer apparel and equipment are a huge part of the revenue for the leagues. So it is no surprise that they are a representation at the most prestigious international women’s athletic events today. This is a good thing because the larger markets will bring in more revenue for the leagues.
As you can see from the above article, the United States National Team is represented in many different sports. Their athletic department is very strong and has qualified players in all twenty sport categories. They do not excel in any area and their overall performance at the international level is excellent. If the US squad qualified for the Olympics this would be the first time they had entered the field and it would be exciting to watch them versus other national teams that have not qualified.
