Masoudi joins Futbol Mundial

OTTAWA - The Canadian Soccer Association today announced it's Communications Director, Mehrdad Masoudi, has resigned from his post effective November 12, 1999.

The 35 year old, a native of Tehran, Iran who emigrated to Canada in 1988, has been with the Association since October of 1992. Known as an Encyclopedia of world soccer information, statistics were his trademark. He leaves the Association for "Futbol Mundial", the world's most watched soccer show as a programme organiser and senior researcher in charge of creative development and will be based in London, England.

"It is with a mixture of joy and sorrow that we make this announcement," stated Kevan Pipe, Chief Operating Officer.

" We are happy to see Mehrdad move on to such an important position in the world of soccer but at the same time, are sad to lose a colleague who has contributed so much over the years."

Masoudi, a FIFA Press Officer during World Cup '98 in France as well as a similar position with CONCACAF during the 1996 Gold Cup, was also primarily responsible for developing the CSA's web site over the years as well, a site which carries media releases from the Association on almost a daily basis. He convened an Internet Symposium during the Olympic Qualifying Championship in May, 1996 in Edmonton that attracted journalists from all over the Confederation at a time when this medium was beginning it's leap in popularity.

"I have mixed feelings. While I am extremely excited about my new career with Futbol Mundial, I am sad to leave the Canadian Soccer scene to which I have devoted ten years of my life through my positions with the former Canadian Soccer League and Canadian Soccer Association," said Mehrdad Masoudi. "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all my colleagues at the Canadian Soccer Association with whom I share many great memories."

The Canadian Soccer Association expresses it's sincerest thanks and congratulations to Mehrdad Masoudi and wishes him well in his exciting new career with Futbol Mundial.
