Harvey named WPS COO
Mary Harvey has been named Chief Operating Officer of the WPS, which kicks off next spring with seven teams.
Harvey, most recently FIFA's Director of Development, was the backup keeper on the USA's 1996 Olympic gold medal team during an 8-year national team career in which she earned 27 caps.
Harvey will oversee the WPS's day-to-day operations with a particular focus on league financials, expansion, non-revenue partnerships, player processes and competitions. As part of the oversight of competition issues, Harvey will be responsible for scheduling, day-of-game standards, procedures, match officials and in-stadium experience for league games.
