Former Penn State Star On Board of Trustees Ballot

One of the brightest stars in Penn State soccer history is running to make an impact on the university, and its athletic program, in the upcoming Board of Trustees election.

On Monday Morning, News came down that Gotham FC, and US Women’s Soccer star Ali Krieger is running for a seat on the Board of Trustees at Penn State:


“Our community faces enormous challenges,” Krieger said in a statement, outlining why she’s running for Penn State Board of Trustees. “A pandemic and global inflation, growing climate-related risks, and an ever-changing job market. The way we react and adapt for the future will determine our university’s legacy. We can rise to the challenge and solidify Penn State’s status as a leader on the international stage. If we do nothing, we will fall behind our peers. That’s why we’re running for Penn State’s Board of Trustees.”

Krieger is excited to create change at Penn State

Krieger played at Penn State from 2003 – 2007 and led the Nittany Lions to four consecutive Big Ten championships. Krieger was a member of three FIFA Women’s World Cup teams for the U.S. (2011, 2015, and 2019) – winning in 2015 and 2019.
