Breaking: WPS Elects To Suspend Season

After working USSF to be sanctioned for 2012 despite not meeting the requisite requirements, the Women’s Professional Soccer League (WPS) suspended operations today for the 2012 season.

The main culprit per league messaging: the mounting legal bills of attempting to finally close the Dan Borislow ownership situation. (If you remember, coming out of Women’s World Cup 2011, the league engaged in a lengthy and vitriol-filled battled with the Florida-based club owner, much to the detriment it appear of its bank account and it’s ability to grow the league.)

Details are still forthcoming. Click here for more info from the source material.

    Did a tree just fall, because I wasn’t there and didn’t hear it. Just the crickets chirping.

      This is probably the sentiment of many others that lead to the downfall. Maybe if a final was broadcasted on ESPN 2?…eh

  2. Bummer, this could’ve been another good year for the league attendance-wise building off the potential success of the USWNT in the Olympics.

    If this country cannot continue to support a Women’s domestic league, I’ll have to ship my daughter off to some European Youth Academy such as Arsenal Ladies (who dominate) or maybe Barca has a women’s team…
