Angel City Appoints New Vice President Of Player Development & Operations
Angel City Football Club (ACFC) have announced the hiring of Angela Hucles Mangano as the Vice-President of Player Development and Operations.
Hucles Mangano is the club’s third soccer hire, joining the team’s Sporting Director Eniola Aluko and Director of Scouting and Analytics Kim McCauley.
The former United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) player and a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, is also a founding investor in ACFC along with 13 of her USWNT teammates.
“I could not be more excited to welcome Angela to the Angel City FC family,” said Julie Uhrman, Founder and President of ACFC.
“When she joined with her teammates as a founding investor, she immediately raised her hand to help us build out the club.
“Whether attending community events, hosting our weeklong Black History Month panels, or helping in the search for our Sporting Director, Angela has been an invaluable partner. I’m excited to watch her work alongside Eni and build out our soccer ops team that will support our players on and off the pitch.”
In this critical role, Hucles Mangano will work alongside Aluko managing all the team needs including creating a player wellness and development program, identifying and securing a practice facility, securing player housing and travel, and organising all non-NWSL friendly matches.
“I was so honored to be asked to be part of the founding investor group, and when I started to get a broader understanding of the people that make up ACFC and their commitment to making an impact, I knew I wanted to get more involved in the day-to-day,” said Hucles Mangano.
“When Team President Julie Uhrman approached me about helping set up our player ops and development program, with a focus on the whole person, I jumped at the chance. This is a dream job that I didn’t even know existed and I can’t wait to get started.”
