Plans appear to be in the development stage for a new women’s soccer league in America, to replace the WPS, which went under in 2012, after three seasons. The new league – which would feature a number of the main professional women’s teams, including the Chicago Red Stars, the Boston Breakers and the New Jersey Sky Blue FC – would begin in spring 2013, according to a statement by a spokesperson for the Boston Breakers released on Thursday.
This latest bid to set up and establish a professional womenís soccer league, follows two previous failed attempts; with both the WPS and WUSA before it, surviving only a handful of seasons. Therefore while this announcement is certainly welcome news for those seeking to establish a strong womenís soccer league in America, it is doubtful whether anyone who wagers on sporting issues at a sports betting or online casino site will be putting too much money on its long-term survival. In the case of the WUPA, the league foundered on an inability to attract sufficient audience interest ñ despite securing investment totalling more than $100 million following the win by America in the 1999 World Cup; while the WPS collapsed in the wake of legal action brought by Dan Borislow, a former club owner.
Despite the setbacks experienced during these two previous attempts to create a lasting womenís league, Michael Stoller of the Boston Breakers, stated that all involved in this latest attempt were confident of making it work:
“All these teams are committed to playing with and against each other starting in 2013 and to working out the final details to allow a sustainable professional league for women’s soccer in the U.S.”
Stoller added that the new league was not intended to compete against the existing womenís leagues, but instead to offer a potential promotion opportunity for teams currently competing in those leagues.
