Soccerlens Podcast – The Resurrection of Women’s Soccer

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!
