The Women’s Premier Soccer League launches its Her Game campaign ahead of the 2021 season.

The WPSL kicks off its 23rd season this weekend, making it the longest active women’s soccer league in the world. Since 1998, the WPSL continues to deliver a highly competitive platform for the nation’s elite female athletes that creates a pathway for them to excel and reach the next level.

Her Game is more than a seasonal campaign, it’s the WPSL’s vision to provide ample opportunities that support female athletes, specifically in the advancement of women’s soccer.

“We strive to empower our current and future players and want to continue to recognize them for their hard work and achievements on and off the field,”

In the last four National Women’s Soccer League Drafts, 85 former WPSL players were selected – over 53%; and of these players, 42 WPSL teams were represented with at least one alumna being drafted.

The NWSL saw 119 WPSL alumnae on 2021 Preseason Rosters and during the 2021 Challenge Cup Final between the NJ/NY Gotham FC and Portland Thorns that took place last weekend, 18 WPSL alumnae were represented – almost half of which played in the last three WPSL seasons.

The WPSL is committed to advancing women’s soccer and in doing so continues to dedicate its resources to creating more opportunities for player development.

“This league [the WPSL] prepared me for my professional career and it’s special to say that I still keep in touch with those I met within the league as I continue to play today,”

In addition to providing more opportunities on the field, the WPSL is also committed to highlighting the tremendous talent throughout the league by launching the official Her Game Podcast which will feature interviews from current players, coaches, elite alumnae, and more.
