CNBC Forgets The NWSL Exists

An awesome unchecked article resulted in a flood of heat from NWSL supporters.

CNBC released an article June 11 at 8 a.m. EST with the headline “Major League Soccer will be the first contact sport to return, giving it a chance to outshine rivals.”

Now I don’t know about you guys, but that headline sure doesn’t seem accurate. MLS is said to return July 8, while the NWSL Challenge Cup is said to return June 27. 

In an era of fast-paced media consumption and Google at our fingertips, a slew of responses flooded Twitter and said all the right things. (CNBC since took down the original tweet publicizing the article.)

After a few hours, CNBC sheepishly had to update its article. The headline now is “Men’s soccer has a huge opportunity to outshine rival leagues when the season restarts.”
