Jill Ellis has been appointed as the head of FIFA’s Technical Advisory Group.

The former USWNT and two-time World Cup-winning head coach will work with “stakeholders from all platforms to examine and explore ways to improve the current match calendar and build global development and competitiveness,” FIFA announced on Sunday.

“I look forward to working with FIFA and bringing together the best minds in our sport,” Ellis said in a statement through the organization.

Ellis’ role is in addition to her position as the president of San Diego’s NWSL expansion team.
