Despite the failure of the WUSA a few years ago, former U.S. Women’s National Team star Julie Foudy believes a women’s professional soccer league could work in America with some cost control.
“I am cautiously optimistic it’s going to be back,” she told Reuters. “The women’s game attracts a different market than the men’s game – I think they can build on each other.”
“Sponsorship was good, our revenue was steady, it’s just that our expenses were way out of line,” suggested Foudy. “Now you are seeing an environment where there is a potential for sharing infrastructure with a lot of (MLS) teams.”
