Elon University Fall Convocation

Elon University Fall Convocation

Friday, September 24, 2021, 3:30 p.m.
Schar Center

A two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and World Cup Champion, soccer legend Carli Lloyd will deliver the Fall Convocation address with her trainer, Danny Madaroski. The current captain of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, Lloyd has represented the country in the past four Women’s World Cup tournaments and scored the winning goal in the finals of both the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Lloyd led the U.S. team in 2015 to its first World Cup Championship since 1999. She scored a historic hat trick during the final match that year against Japan, with her third and final goal of the game widely described as one of the greatest soccer goals of all time. Four years later, the team claimed its record fourth World Cup title, making Lloyd a two-time champion and the first player to score in six straight Women’s World Cup games.  She is one of only four Americans to be awarded the FIFA World Player of the Year, the most prestigious and highest award in soccer, and took home the award twice. This is a masked indoor event. 

Admission: $15 or Elon ID. Tickets available beginning September 3.
