(All the financials from the past seven years are available here.)
A few highlights from the most recent documents:
The federation reported $56.5 million in revenue and $59.6 million in expenses for a shortfall of $3.1 million. The previous year, which included the 2010 World Cup, revenue was $67.3 million and expenses were $65 million for a $2.3 million gain.
Dan Flynn, the USSF’s chief executive and secretary general, earned $611,478. USSF President Sunil Gulati did not receive a cent; it’s an unpaid position. Expenses on federation business, however, are covered.
Juergen Klinsmann, the men’s national team coach, collected $1,047,172 — a portion of his $2.5 million salary. He was hired late in the summer of 2011. Klinsmann’s contract runs through Aug. 31, 2014.
His predecessor, Bob Bradley, was fired July 28, 2011 — four months into the tax period — but because his contract ran until the end of the year, he received $872,658. The previous year, Bradley pocketed $942,000.
Pia Sundhage, the women’s coach for the entire tax period, including the 2011 Women’s World Cup, earned $299,190. Because her successor, Tom Sermanni, was a recent hire, terms of his contract through public records won’t be available for several months. It’s safe to assume his pay scale is comparable to Sundhage’s.
Thomas Rongen, the under-20 men’s coach, was fired in May 2011, but because his contract was good through the end of the year, he claimed $159,219.
Nothing new here but worth repeating: The USSF receives $8.5 million annually from Soccer United Marketing, a division of MLS, in exchange for the federation’s marketing rights. SUM keeps the revenue generated through the arrangement, except from Nike, which last year directly compensated the federation for $12.6 million in funding and equipment. The USSF’s contracts with both SUM and Nike run through the end of 2014.
