It did not take long to make this news official. Word broke on Friday that Alex Morgan was set to sign with the Seattle Sounders Women and the USL W-League team made it official on Monday. Morgan joins United States teammates Hope Solo and Sydney Leroux for what is expected to be four league games in 2012.
“I am excited to play in a city that is so passionate about soccer,” Morgan said. “The Sounders have been one of, if not the best fan support in MLS. I can only imagine how Seattle fans would respond to having a full professional women’s team in the future.”
I think we are all imagining what that would be like. And with the moves the Sounders Women are making, it’s clear they have some big plans ahead. In fact, General Manager Amy Carnell told us they do on “This Week in Women’s Soccer.”
