USL seeking associate general counsel

Florida-based United Soccer League is seeking new hire to join three-strong legal team



The United Soccer League (USL) has begun a recruitment process for an associate general counsel.


The USL oversees the USL Championship, USL Super League, USL League One, USL League Two, USL W League, USL Academy, and Super Y League.


Based in Tampa, Florida, the USL has a dedicated staff of more than 75 professionals across 15 departments ranging from operations, digital, communications and club services, each of which provides support to member clubs and outside partners.


The USL is sanctioned by the US Soccer Federation.

Reporting to the general counsel, the associate general counsel will play an “essential role in mitigating risk and providing legal counsel across this fast-paced and rapidly growing organisation, including across all of its leagues and properties”.


As one member of a three-lawyer team, the ideal candidate will be “ready to hit the ground running on day one, assisting in all aspects of the legal function, including transactional, regulatory, compliance and advising, and occasional oversight of outside counsel for litigation matters,” the USL said.
