Bruce Arena Named to the National Soccer Hall of Fame

Galaxy Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena has been elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame's Class of 2010.

“Bruce Arena’s passion for the game, ability to build exceptionally competitive teams at the collegiate and the professional level, and his outstanding work with the U.S. Men’s National Team are well known and highly regarded by his colleagues and opponents,” HOF President Jonathan Ullman stated. “His tremendous record of service in soccer and success in the game has earned him election to the Hall of Fame.”

Arena was named on 78 percent of the ballots, far more than the 50 percent that is needed for election. He will join Thomas Dooley and former Chivas USA head coach Preki in the Hall of Fame's Class of 2010, which is expected to be formal inducted to the Hall this summer.

Join us in congratulating Bruce on this tremendous achievement.
