IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: SUNIL GULATI - SOCCER BOSS/ECONOMICS PROFESSOR

Rate this Entry
Gulati Indian-born Sunil Gulati is the President of the US Soccer Federation and is also an economics professor at Columbia University. And he is widely credited as the person most responsible for the growth in the popularity of soccer in the US over the last 30 years.

Gulati was in the news today because President Obama has decided to help make the case for the US to get the 2018 or 2022 World Cup. The location for those two Cups will be announced shortly after next year's World Cup in South Africa. The US last hosted the World Cup in 1994 and despite the fact that the sport is not as popular here as the rest of the world, the event was seen as a major success and attracted more attendees than any other World Cup before or since. On a personal note, I attended the Russia-Brazil match in Stanford Stadium while my wife and I were honeymooning. That was also the week of the O.J. Simpson Bronco chase. It's amazing what you remember :-).
