Wednesday morning: What's in the news ...

1. The Philadelphia Union has granted Subaru of America multi-year naming rights to its 18,500-seat stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania. Subaru Park marks the first time Subaru has entered into a partnership with a major league sports team. The agreement includes enhancements for fans and fan viewing at the stadium but also support for programs centered around youth soccer, pediatric cancer, pet adoption, and environmental sustainability in the greater Philadelphia community.

2. Sky Blue FC has completed the move from Central Jersey to North Jersey with an agreement to share the New York Red Bulls' practice facility in East Hanover for the 2020 NWSL season. After playing two games at Red Bull Arena in Harrison in 2019, Sky Blue will play its complete 2020 NWSL schedule in the Red Bulls' home stadium. In 2019, it played its games at Yurcak Field on the campus Rutgers University, its home for the first seven NWSL seasons, and trained at Georgian Court University.

3. The NWSL's next commissioner will be a woman and an announcement of her name will be made in the "coming weeks," but that's all we know about the league's transition period. NWSL president Amanda Duffy departed last Friday and assumed her role as the executive vice president of the Orlando Pride. The role of NWSL commissioner has been vacant since Jeff Plush resigned in March 2017.
