MOST COMMENTED

[NWSL] Seven of the eight teams in the new women's pro league have names, and the league, to be administered by U.S. Soccer, now has a name, the National Women's Soccer League.

The NWSL will begin in the spring of 2013 with eight teams: Boston Breakers, Chicago Red Stars, FC Kansas City, Portland Thorns FC, Sky Blue FC, Washington Spirit, Western New York Flash and Seattle, which has yet to announce its team name.

"We are working on finalizing a number of league items, but we now have a name and a logo that we think the fans will identify with and enjoy," said Cheryl Bailey, the league's executive director, in a statement. "This is a league we have to build from the bottom up and we have a group of dedicated owners and talented support staff at U.S. Soccer to keep this process moving in a positive direction while slowly growing the brand."

    Nice to see the association realizing it needs to run the leagues, too bad they have not retained day to day operational control pro leagues on the men's side.
