Players to sponsors to executives has had a comment regarding the resignation of FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

A little before 4 pm ET, the president of the United States Soccer Federation Sunil Gulati released this statement about the days events.

The announcement today by President Blatter represents an exceptional and immediate opportunity for positive change within FIFA. I commend him for making a decision that puts FIFA and the sport we love above all other interests. This is the first of many steps towards real and meaningful reform within FIFA. Today is an occasion for optimism and belief for everyone who shares a passion for our game.

It is no secret that Gulati and the rest of the U.S. officials were publicly opposed to Blatter in the most recent FIFA Election.

While the United States has avoided political retribution, it remains unclear the role the federation will play in the reformation of FIFA.

Stay tuned to Empire of Soccer as this story continues to unfold.
