MLS side D.C. United will field a women’s team in the W-League in 2011, as first reported by Steve Goff. The team will play at the Maryland SoccerPlex, the former home of the Washington Freedom.
With all of the recent talk about the potential for crossover between MLS teams and WPS teams, the timing of the announcement is particularly interesting. It would be foolish to jump to conclusions about this being anything more than an experiment for D.C. United, but it should be an interesting story to monitor. WPS wants to be back in the Washington market after the Freedom, now known as magicJack, relocated to Boca Raton, Fla. at the beginning of the season.
For more information on the team, check out page 81 of the USL media guide.
