The most pressing question in the final week of the 2020 National Women’s Soccer League Challenge Cup is whether there will be any further league competition this year.
The NWSL’s board of directors meets again on Tuesday, and atop the agenda is figuring out whether there will be any more official games to play in 2020. Opinions among the board vary greatly, based on The Equalizer’s conversations with sources throughout the league. There is also an increasing anxiety among the collective NWSL player pool to get answers about what the rest of their year looks like so that they can make plans. If the NWSL does not plan to play again in 2020, many players will likely look to secure short-term loans or permanent deals in Europe, where many countries have dealt with COVID-19 far better than the U.S. has.
