Seven years before the first US Women’s Olympic soccer team, John created the SST’s and was the first celebrity to promote Women’s Soccer. The Soho News was one of the many top newspapers in NYC to put women’s soccer on the cover, and the year was 1978. John and Janet’s dream to have women’s soccer in the Olympics, was then something that many were laughing at. In 1985 the United States Soccer Federation began their program to support the development of the National Team for women. We have come a long way from 25 years ago on the dirt fields of Central Park. Can we get our second Gold Medal in a row! Why not, we have worked hard for it.
