    WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Soccer celebrated its Centennial Anniversary on Saturday with a Gala Dinner at the National Building Museum. FIFA Vice President and CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb was in attendance and offered a commemorative plaque on behalf of FIFA President Joseph Blatter, who could not be present.

    The organization was originally founded in 1913 as the United States Football Association.

    At one point, its National Team programs qualified for 19 consecutive FIFA outdoor world championships before the Under-23 national team missed out on the Olympics in 2004.
