[NWSL] U.S. Soccer and the Women's National Team Players Association agreed to the material terms of a new collective bargaining agreement through 2016, paving the way for U.S. national team players to begin training with their NWSL teams on Wednesday.

The majority of the current national team consists of players who were allocated to NWSL clubs in January for the league's launch in April.

The joint statement from U.S. Soccer and the Women's National Team Players Association:

"We are pleased to have concluded this agreement in a timely manner. It took a little longer than we had hoped given the complexity of the issues involved but we are happy it is now behind us. This agreement will allow the players to focus on keeping the U.S. Women's National Team at the top of the sport and ensure the NWSL is successful for its launch in April."

-- The Seattle Reign won its first game on its Japanese tour with a 3-1 win over over Fukuoka J Anclas. SRFC goals were scored by Laura Heyboer, Marissa Mykines and Liz Bogus. Fukuoka was relegated to the Challenge League (second division) after the 2012 season. In its first game, Seattle fell to Japanese champion INAC Kobe Leonessa, 2-0, in a match played on Okinawa.
