the USSF is unlikely to buy fifa 16 coins ever impose

U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati indicated that the USSF is unlikely to buy fifa 16 coins ever impose a system of promotion/relegation on the leagues under its jurisdiction.

Speaking to a group of reporters ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier between the U.S. and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Gulati said one reason why implementing such a system would be difficult is that the sports culture in the U.S. is different than it is elsewhere in the world.

"In all of our major team sports we have playoffs," he said. "That's not the norm everywhere else. I'm not even talking about seasonal year or anything else, just the fact that the origins of the game are quite different and the way that promotion/relegation started organically in Europe and in Latin America -- with what in some cases were company teams -- it's just completely different. So that's not saying one is better than the other. That's just the reality of it."
