On the third episode of the Soccerlens Podcast, Stephen Darwin is joined by ESPN Soccernet’s Jacqueline Purdy as we discuss the new Women’s Professional Soccer league set to kick-off later this month in the USA.

In particular we look at the role of Tonya Antonucci in re-establishing the professional game of soccer in the States and we also discuss the WPS league and its chances of long-term survival.

We also talk about the brand new WPS camps, the wealth of talent plying their trade in the WPS league and there’s even a brief explanation from Jacqueline for those of you wondering exactly what a ‘Skort’ is supposed to be!

  • The role of WPS Commissioner Tonya Antonucci
