The USL is deeply saddened by the passing of Grant Wahl, one of the most insightful and passionate voices in American soccer journalism for nearly three decades. His professionalism, integrity, and commitment to telling important stories that revealed the human spirit of our game earned him respect around the world. His remarkable skills as a writer, reporter, and broadcaster, combined with his love of soccer, truly helped advance the sport in the United States.
Grant was a friend to many people in the soccer community and a fearless, vocal supporter of marginalized peoples. His passing is a terrible loss for all of us, and we always will be grateful for his contributions.
We share our condolences with Grant’s wife, Dr. Celine Gounder, and his family.
