Today, the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced the destination teams for the 55 national team players being subsidized by the national federations of the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Each team received seven players, except the Western New York Flash, who suffered from the fact that 55 players can’t be evenly divided into eight teams. The Flash only received six players in the allocation process.
The rest of the rosters will be filled out through free agency and the college draft. The draft will take place on January 18 in Indianapolis. The draft coincides with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America convention in Indianapolis the same weekend.
Here are some thoughts on the teams and players involved in the allocation process.
