Bailey set as U.S. women's league director

CHICAGO -- Former U.S. women's national team general manager Cheryl Bailey will serve as the executive director of the new U.S. Soccer-led women's league that will begin play next year.

U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati announced the appointment Thursday.

"Cheryl was a highly regarded employee for U.S. Soccer during her time with the women's national team and she has the perfect skill set and experience to help get this league up and running," Gulati said.

Bailey was the general manager of the U.S. women's national team from 2007-2011.

"It was a wonderful experience to be a part of the women's national team for five years and see firsthand the impact that women's soccer players can have as role models," Bailey said. "The new league is another extension of that and a vitally important part of the continued growth of the sport in the United States."

The eight-team league will have teams in Boston, Chicago, New Jersey, Portland, Seattle, Kansas City, western New York and Washington.
