NWSL Championship moves to Louisville

The NWSL Championship on Nov. 20 will now be played in Louisville, as first reported by The Athletic and confirmed by EQZ. The game was originally slated for a 9 a.m. local kickoff in Portland; this gives the game a noon local kickoff time while keeping the same CBS TV window. The ongoing fan discontent and uncertainty over the Thorns' handling of a 2015 investigation into Paul Riley appears to be a factor, too.

Malik: Courage were assured Riley was ‘in good standing’ in 2017

One week after firing Paul Riley, North Carolina Courage majority owner Steve Malik broke his silence with a letter to fans. In it, he says that he was aware of a 2015 investigation into Riley but was "assured that [Riley] was in good standing." He does not specify who made that assurance. Malik added that the Courage had "no knowledge of allegations" while Riley was employed.

Spirit players collectively call for Baldwin to sell team

Washington Spirit players released a joint statement Tuesday calling for Steve Baldwin to sell his stake in the team to Y. Michele Kang: "the person we trust," they wrote. The statement says Baldwin did not directly reply to their private letter. "This is not a fresh start,” the letter says, criticizing Baldwin’s promise to step down as CEO but leave hand-picked club president Ben Olsen, who has “virtually no experience in the role,” in charge.

Portland supporters demand Wilkinson ousting, increased DEI

Portland Thorns and Timbers supporters released a joint statement on Tuesday night demanding "the immediate and complete removal of [general manager] Gavin Wilkinson from the PTFC organization," following revelations that the Thorns investigated Paul Riley in 2015 but did not reveal that publicly until last week. The list of demands included a call for the creation of a diversity officer position. The groups called for members to boycott concessions and merchandise sales.
