SEATTLE — As calendars turned to December, Emeri Adames was graduating high school and preparing for life playing college soccer at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The Dallas, Texas, native was not planning on going pro. She had committed to a Tarheels program that is consistently one of the best in the nation as one of the nation’s top recruits. Seemingly out of nowhere, Seattle Reign came calling. Discussions began in late December and an invite to preseason soon followed. Adames still wasn’t set on going pro but, time training with the Reign changed everything. “It was defini ..read more

On Tuesday night, the United States won its seventh SheBelieves Cup in nine years. This victory was secured in thrilling fashion – a full-time draw led to penalty kicks and featured goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher not only saving shots but also burying one of her own. But, as the post-match excitement died down, fans and followers immediately honed in on the predictable follow-up question to an international tournament: what could this mean for the Olympics?  In short, a lot! This tournament saw some predictably solid play from Olympic roster shoo-ins like Lindsay Horan, whose abilities to ..read more

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The 2024 SheBelieves Cup final pits two familiar rivals against each other at Lower.com Field as Canada prepares to face the U.S. women’s national team in what is sure to be a feisty match.

Take a look through the National Women’s Soccer League’s 2024 Competition Rules and Regulations and you may find one interesting and important change.

Trinity Rodman’s playmaking helps Spirit beat Royals

It’s hard to talk about the Washington Spirit without focusing on Trinity Rodman. The dynamic 21-year-old, who plays as a right forward for both the Spirit and the U.S. women’s national team, has historically contributed to her teams most profoundly with her speed and scoring. But her greatest endowment to the Spirit so far in 2024 has been through her playmaking. Sunday’s match between the Spirit and the recently-rebooted Utah Royals, which resulted in a 2-1 victory for Washington, featured a successful assist from Rodman, as well as numerous attempted ones and dynamic ball movement throughou ..read more

Three weeks into the National Women’s Soccer League season and a FIFA break is upon us. As teams take the time for a few days off and some self-reflection, the early theme to the season seems to be how many teams have either dropped points from favorable positions or failed to collect maximum points from favorable situations. One team squarely in the crosshairs is Racing Louisville. First-year head coach Bev Yanez has yet to lose, but her side has yet to win, each match more astonishing than the other. Twice in three matches, Racing have led 2-0 in the first half and 2-1 with less than five mi ..read more
