The 2019 North Carolina Soccer Hall of Fame Dinner, held at the Marriott Winston-Salem Hotel on January 26, was a resounding success.  Attendance exceeded 300 for the first time.  The date and site for the 2020 dinner have not yet been determined but they will be posted when they are determined.

The deadline to submit a candidate for the Class of 2020 is August 31, 2019.  The procedure for submitting a candidate is described at the SUBMIT A CANDIDATE tab.  Please consider submitting a candidate.


Recently inducted as a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2018, Parlow Cone was the sole candidate to complete the nomination process in order to run for the office of the Vice President. Parlow Cone’s term will last one year as she assumes the office that was vacated when former Vice President Carlos Cordeiro was elected as President last February at the 2018 U.S. Soccer AGM. Once the current term is finished next year, the Vice-Presidential election for a full, four-year term will be held at the 2020 National Council Meeting.

“I am grateful to be able to continue to serve our great game as U.S. Soccer Vice President,” said Parlow Cone. “I believe with my extensive knowledge of, and experience working in, the soccer landscape of our country, from grassroots to the international level, I will help U.S. Soccer continue to build, develop, and grow soccer in the United States at every level.”

Parlow Cone’s election as U.S. Soccer VP is the latest step in an impressive career that began as a star forward with the U.S. Women’s National Team from 1996-2004, and title-winning coach at the grassroots, collegiate and professional levels. During the past 20 years, she has served on U.S. Soccer’s Referee Committee, Medical Advisory Committee, Appeals Committee and the Athletes’ Council as well as more recently with U.S. Soccer’s Youth Task Force.

 The North Carolina Soccer Hall of Fame was established in 1996 to recognize and honor those persons, either player, coach, referee or administrator, that have made significant contributions to the game of soccer in the State of North Carolina. To be eligible, inductees would have spent several years in North Carolina directly involved in and promoting the game.  Those with primarily regional or national accomplishments may also be considered when those accomplishments draw attention to furthering the game in the State by virtue of their prior relationship in North Carolina.

In 2012 the NCHSOF Board of Directors added the National Champions Hall of Honor category to honor North Carolina teams and programs that have won national championships at the highest levels of competition in youth, amateur adult, college or professional soccer.
