8 cities/regions set for new woso league?
According to Kassouf at The Equalizer, they are:
- Kansas City
- New York/New Jersey
- Washington D.C.
- Western New York
This on the heels of the DC Freedom blowing the dust off their twitter account.
SoccerWire says “an email containing important information about the new enterprise has been sent out to members of the U.S. Women’s National Team pool this week.” Apparently we’re still set for a spring 2013 launch. (If so, I would bet on both Abby and Sinc staying in North America, so…sorry PSG.)
And if you were wondering why we haven’t heard news until now, Andy Crossley made some informed speculation.
The “herding cats” theory is the one that seems to hold some water. U.S. Soccer is vetting the franchise applications and set an early October deadline for interested parties to submit business plans. Not just skeletal W-League-style plans for fielding a soccer team, but actual business plans for balancing revenues and expenses while maintaining acceptable standards of professionalism. Although numerous parties were interested, few met the early October deadline and U.S. Soccer was compelled to extend the timeline, contributing to the delay in meaningful news. Although there are now enough applications to select as many as a dozen franchises, one source expects Gulati will only approve eight for the first season.
I know I should play my cards closer to my vest, but I can’t help it, I AM EXCITE. LONG LIVE AMERICAN WOSO.
