Seven new teams ready to go for 2015 season
The Women’s Premier Soccer League would like to welcome seven new teams that will begin playing this coming season. The expansion teams hail from a various regions across the country, and even from outside the country.
Among the newcomers is Club Tijuana from Baja California, Mexico. The addition of a team south of the border is in line with the league’s vision of becoming an international league. Club Tijuana is not the first international club to play in the WPSL, as there have been previous clubs from Canada in the league. Club Tijuana will be playing in the tough Pacific-South Region, where current WPSL Champion Beach Futbol Club plays.
The other six new clubs for the upcoming season are: Federal City, Virginia Beach, Chesterfield United, R.V.A Fredericksburg (New Region); Fresno Freeze (Pacific-North Region); and Northwest Florida (Sunshine Region).
The WPSL continues to flourish, showing continuous support for the growth of women’s soccer, not only across the country, but across international borders as well. There could potentially be more teams joining for the 2015 season. Several teams from across the country are currently in the process of putting together their franchise packets in order to join the league.
We will continue to update our fans and players as new developments unfold. For now, please help us welcome our members to the WPSL and let’s continue to support women’s soccer everywhere.
