Amy Carnell: Seattle Sounders Women plan for present and future

Hope Solo

Amy Carnell, general manager of the Seattle Sounders Women, joined me on a special edition of “This Week in Women’s Soccer” on Thursday evening to talk about the team’s recent signings of U.S. internationals Hope Solo and Sydney Leroux. Carnell and I chatted about everything from the availability of those two players to what the Sounders Women will wear in 2012.

In Brief:

  • Solo and Leroux are expected to be available for approximately three, maybe four home games and possibly one on the road. There will also be an exhibition game against a team that Solo is pretty familiar with…
  • In order to try to get Solo and Leroux playing in a game against one of Seattle’s biggest rivals, Carnell is working on trying to change the date of one home game…
  • Carnell said the Sounders Women ownership group is yet to see WPS or anyone present them an appealing professional model, but they are open to playing at the highest level…
