Sky Blue FC will be featuring at Montclair State instead of Red Bull Arena. Red Bull Arena is currently being used by both the New York Red Bulls and New York City FC of MLS, as they are forced to share a stadium with Yankee Stadium in use.
Also, the Orlando Pride will host the Houston Dash at Osceola County Stadium on Oct. 9.
“Building on the success of this summer’s Challenge Cup, I am so excited to smartly and safely take this next step on the NWSL’s journey,” Lisa, Baird, NWSL Commissioner, said last week. “The women of the NWSL want to compete and we’ve certainly heard from our fans all over the world looking for more action this year. I’d like to thank the NWSL Player’s Association for their constant collaboration, as well as CBS for continuing to invest in our league’s growth and this unprecedented opportunity to showcase the NWSL to a world-wide audience, week-in, week-out.”
