Ten days before WPS 2010 kicks off, WPS unveiled enhancements to the League's website, womensprosoccer.com, with which fans have the chance to rate and comment on news articles, and play the WPS Fantasy Challenge.

The WPS Fantasy Challenge is the first-ever in all of women's soccer. Fans can compete against other fans, friends, and family as this season progresses. Each week, there will be a new contest, and weekly winners can only win once this season.

Whoever gets the highest amount of points at the end of the week, will receive his/her pick of a WPS replica home team t-shirt of choice or a WPS fanwear team t-shirt of choice. If a person has the highest amount of points on another week, the person with the second highest amount of points will win.

The overall winner, the person with the most points accumulated through the season, will receive a PUMA prize pack consisting of an autographed WPS All-Star Jersey, an Official WPS PUMA Team home jersey of choice, an official WPS PUMA match ball, a WPS PUMA team warmup jacket of choice, a WPS PUMA team sling bag of choice and a WPS PUMA team hat of choice.

The next four contestants with the next highest amount of points will win an autographed WPS All-Star match ball. The next five contestants with the most points at the end of the season will win a WPS Team jersey of their choice.

The WPS Fantasy Challenge is only better for the league. It makes fans follow the league closer and really pay attention to the players to try and get the most points possible each week. Who wouldn't want to win WPS and Puma gear?

“We want soccer fans and league followers to go out and play the role of WPS coach and GM this season,” says Karyn Lush, WPS Head of New Media. “It’s a great way to follow the players, games and teams all season with a rooting interest no matter where you live.”
