TOP U.S. WOMEN SOCCER PLAYERS COMMIT TO NEW U.S. LEAGUE
Published February 14, 1997
Thirteen members of the gold-medal winning U.S. Olympic Women's Soccer Team have agreed to play in the National Soccer Alliance, the first ever professional women's soccer league in the U.S. Plans for the league will be announced Saturday at the SGMA Supershow in Atlanta. The NSA, which will conduct a multi-city "barnstorming tour" this fall, has named former WA Governor Booth Gardner as its first commissioner (NSA). MD-based sports attorney Ellen Zavian will represent the players for its players association (THE DAILY). Talks have been held with potential sponsors, including Nike and Reebok. The league, which will begin in '98, is contemplating eight teams and a top salary of about $30,000 (Jerry Langdon, USA TODAY, 2/14).
