Rosters: 2019 National Women's Soccer League

The NWSL will kick off its seventh season this weekend with four games. Here are the team rosters.

Rosters. Senior rosters have been expanded to a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 22 players. In addition, the League has created four new supplemental roster spots that will allow teams to sign up to four additional players at the league minimum salary who will not count against the salary cap.

New players. It was a relatively quiet offseason. U.S. national team defender Tierna Davidson went to Chicago with the No. 1 pick in the College Draft. Utah signed Spanish veteran Veronica Boquete. Australian Elise Kellond-Knight finally moved to Reign FC while two other Matildas, Chloe Logarzo and Amy Harrison went to Washington.

New coaches. Three teams have new coaches: Washington (Richie Burke), Orlando (Marc Skinner) and Houston (James Clarkson), all Englishmen.
