[WPS]
The first Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) allocations will be announced, and according to the Washington Post's Soccer Insider, star Abby Wambach is headed (back) to the Washington Freedom.

Wambach, who played for the WUSA's Freedom, will be joined by Cat Whitehilland Ali Krieger on the Freedom, one of seven teams set to debut in 2009. Like Wambach, Whitehill was injured and missed the Olympics.

Krieger, a product of nearby Dumfries, Va., won the 2008 UEFA Women's Cup with Germany's FFC Frankfurt.

NBA All-Star Steve Nash is scheduled to be on hand when the first WPS allocations of U.S. national team players are announced Tuesday afternoon at the Sports Museum of America in New York.

The seven WPS teams who will participate in the inaugural 2009 season: Bay Area, Boston Breakers, Chicago Red Stars, Los Angeles, Sky Blue FC, St. Louis and the Freedom.
