CHICAGO (Nov. 9, 2015) – Earlier today, a joint statement was issued regarding the fact that a resolution has been reached in the concussion litigation filed in August of 2014 against U.S. Soccer, United States Youth Soccer Association, American Youth Soccer Organization, US Club Soccer and the California Youth Soccer Association.

AYSO and other youth soccer program providers have been engaged in dialog with US Soccer through the last several months. At this time, AYSO has no comment related to the settlement. As US Soccer completes the information release and roll out plans, AYSO will provide updates to all of our membership.
