“It’s a more difficult situation with the NWSL than with MLS. Frankly, I’m not sure if this had happened a couple years ago if the league would have survived. As difficult as it is, I think the NWSL has never been better positioned to get through this. Whether or not we’re able to pull something off with the NWSL season, I don’t know, but I think there’s a good plan that’s being worked on and it sounds pretty promising.”
