The womens premier soccer league have just announced two new teams to be hitting the field in 2015.
The two expansion teams named Chesterfield United and RVA fc will be in the 2015 WPSL season, these two side have already been involved in the NPSL back in 2013.
Chesterfield United also is involved in lots of youth programs so you will be sure to see chesterfield be the gateway for many young aspiring players break into pro soccer.
This is always good news and will help to expand the league even further.
The women’s Premier league will now have even more teams in the league which is always a good thing.
Grover Gibson Soccer Foundation are behind RVA FC which is based in Richmond, Virginia and is a new club founded in 2013 but that doesn’t mean the team are rookies and run by people who dont know what they are doing as the RVA FC men’s team currently are the champions in the NPSL. RVA FC are already trying to get their team ready and may play some warm up friendly games this year in prep for the 2015 season.
Chesterfield United on the other hand have been around since the 1980’s with and in that time they have been called a lot of things, the teams original name being Dale Youth Soccer they later adopted the name Chesterfield Soccer club in 1995… then they merged with James River United… then with a final tweak to their name from soccer to “football” in 2008 they are currently Chesterfield united football club and have played in various leagues.
Any expansion of any womens soccer league is good news as it helps spread womens soccer across America and gives more role models for girls to follow.
