“Revolutionizing Soccer: Breaking Barriers for the ‘Right Culture’ in the United States”

In the world of soccer, culture is not just a mere backdrop; it serves as the heartbeat of the game. Yet, here in the United States, a crucial aspect often overlooked is the absence of what can be termed the “right soccer culture.” This deficiency, I believe, stems from a systemic denial of opportunities for those who possess it—the majority. This is against the principles of America and its meritocracy.

The closed nature of the soccer market in the United States, particularly with the governing influence of Major League Soccer (MLS) over the US Soccer Federation, is at the core of this issue. Rather than fostering an inclusive environment, the soccer ecosystem has been monopolized by the “wrong culture,” represented by the minority, to the detriment of the majority and the sport as a whole.

The practice of gatekeeping within US soccer, selecting a token individual now and then with the “right culture” for roles such as players, coaches, or executives, does not offer a viable pathway to sustainable change. It serves as a superficial attempt to showcase diversity without addressing the underlying problem of a closed system.

To address this imbalance, my ultimate goal is the creation of the National Soccer League, aimed at establishing an open ecosystem that allows the “right cultures” to rise and flourish on a significant scale. The emphasis is on providing equal opportunities for everyone to contribute to the beautiful game, regardless of their cultural background.

This endeavor is more than a fight for a specific soccer culture; it’s a broader struggle for the values that the game represents—equal opportunity, freedom, and merit. Beyond merely kicking a ball on a patch of grass, it’s a call to action for fans to mobilize and vote with their feet, demanding a soccer landscape that reflects the principles of justice and equity.

In essence, the establishment of the National Soccer League is not just about creating a new competition; it symbolizes a commitment to reshaping the narrative of soccer in the United States. It is a moral imperative to ensure that the sport thrives as a platform for diverse talents, fostering an environment where everyone can contribute and excel based on their abilities, echoing the true spirit of the beautiful game.
