Firstly, I hope you’re safe and doing well. The video above addresses some of these points, so I’ll keep this part short: The Equalizer is a member-driven media outlet. We exist today because of your support. You see the value in having a professional, daily media resource for women’s soccer. We’ve been the leading destination for that regular coverage for a decade.
If you aren’t already a subscriber, and you want to keep up with the National Women’s Soccer League and the U.S. women’s national team in the best possible way — while also supporting the advancement of coverage of the sport — I encourage you to start your free, seven-day trial today. Check out all of our subscribers-only content here.
We don’t know when the new NWSL season is going to start, or when the U.S. women will be back in action, but we will continue to bring you fresh, new, interesting content daily. As has been the case for the past two years, plenty of that will be exclusively for subscribers. I want to reiterate that because, in these uncertain times, everyone is evaluating what they need and what they can support.
Our coverage will keep you updated on the latest in the NWSL. Our coverage will keep you engaged with the players and personalities around the sport. And yes, perhaps our coverage will help distract you from everything else going on, and from the absence of actual games. Whatever the reason, I’m confident you’ll enjoy it. Here are some things you can expect in the coming weeks:
Players’ Week: Want to hear from players directly? That’s coming your way again. This was a big success last year and we heard great feedback from players and fans alike. Check out last year’s stories here.
Origin Stories: Ever wonder how your team was started? How it got its name and identity? We’re taking you back in time for some previously-unrevealed scoops on how these teams were born.
Inside the Minds: We’ll keep you wondering about the theme of this content for now, but let’s just say we sat down with some of the best players in their position for a chat on how to master the art.
Podcasts: Our regular podcast, which just celebrated episode 100 before the sports world shut down, will continue intermittently during this delay to the season. We’ll keep you updated on that schedule. BUT! We’ve been planning for some time to create a new, separate podcast in which we interview personalities from around the game. Plans for that were already underway before this sports shutdown, so we’ll begin rolling that out soon.
Twitch: We’re on there now at @EqualizerSoccer! We’ll co-stream some games when the NWSL airs classic matches, and maybe even stream some classic U.S. matches on our own to talk about there. Look for more news soon on original programming we’ll put on Twitch. Follow us there so you don’t miss a thing.
We’ll be rolling out some content exclusive to social media channels, like our “On This Day in Women’s Soccer” flashbacks. We posted one to our Instagram story and our Twitter page this week. There’s a fun trip down memory lane coming next week.
Two years ago today, the 2018 #NWSL season began. We don't know when the 2020 season will start, but we'll help get you there with regular features and short trips down memory lane.

The above is just a small sampling of what the next month or so looks like for us. Look, nothing about these times are normal. There are more important things than soccer, sure, but if you’ve read this far, I’m sure you are with me in saying that we can’t wait for soccer to resume. We’ll be there then, and we’re here now — as we’ve always been.
Founder, The Equalizer
