Top 50 in 50 Results

May 11, 2016 09:13 PM


The final results have been tallied for the Top 50 in 50 voting!  As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration, the soccer community has voted on their favorite male and female players over the first 50 years of WA Youth Soccer! The Top 50 is a popular vote by the soccer community, and over 3,000 votes were cast.

The top pick for both male and female player shouldn't be a surprise, as World Cup veteran Kasey Keller and FIFA Player of the Century Michelle Akers took the top spots.

A panel of local soccer experts will now be tasked with selecting their Top 50 male and female rosters of 18, which will be announced at a later date.

Voting for the Top 50 Soccer Citizens (community leaders) will continue until Sept. 1, and will be announced at the 50th Anniversary Gala on Sept. 9.
