The National Women's Soccer League ( NWSL ) announced that its season will resume Saturday, Sept. 5, according to a press release.
Following the Challenge Cup that recently took place, there will be a televised NWSL Game of the Week on the CBS Television Network every Saturday in September, and on CBS Sports Network three Saturdays in October. CBS All Access will exclusively stream four games as well as the CBS broadcast coverage in September.
The NWSL fall series will include 18 matches over the course of seven weeks, featuring three, three-team pods that will all play one another and enable the league to minimize travel. The full format and schedule for the NWSL fall series will be released soon.
The three teams in each regional pod will each play four games. Those pods are:
West: OL Reign, Portland Thorns FC and Utah Royals FC;
Northeast: Chicago Red Stars, Sky Blue FC ( located in New Jersey ) and Washington Spirit; and
South: North Carolina Courage, Orlando Pride and Houston Dash.
