I'm neither happy nor angry. I hope it works out.NWSL announces plan to start season on June 27, will be first U.S. team sport to return to play
The National Women’s Soccer League announced on Wednesday its plan to start the 2020 season and become the first United States sports league to return to play.
The NWSL season, which never officially began due to the COVID-19 shutdown, will take the form of a 25-game tournament for the Challenge Cup, the NWSL’s yearly championship. All nine NWSL teams will play four games to determine seeding, then the top eight teams will advance to the quarterfinal knockout round.
The tournament will begin on June 27 and last for 30 days. The preliminary games and quarterfinals will be played at Zions Bank Stadium in Herriman, Utah, and the semifinals and final will be played at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. No fans will be allowed at any games.
