The Boston Breakers Have Reportedly Folded
The Boston Breakers, formerly the longest-continuously-operating women's soccer team in the United States, has folded. Players were notified on Wednesday.
You’ll see the subtweets. Official word coming soon. Breakers will fold ahead of the 2018 season. Players and staff have been notified. https://t.co/qFHUvdX21y— Anthony DiCicco (@DiCiccoMethod) January 25, 2018
The Breakers, from what I understand, had been behind on league payments for long time and #NWSL owners kept letting it slide to keep the team afloat. I think Breakers folding says something about the changing make-up of league ownership.— Caitlin Murray (@caitlinmurr) January 25, 2018
The NWSL now has nine teams: Sky Blue FC, Orlando Pride, Chicago Red Stars, North Carolina Courage, Portland Thorns, Seattle Reign, Houston Dash and Washington Spirit.
