NWSL Exec Dir Cheryl Bailey Weighs In On League Launch, Obstacles
Published April 17, 2013
LOOKING AT THE LAUNCH: In DC, Steven Goff wrote the NWSL “has had to hit the ground running -- in steel-toe construction boots.” He noted “positive vibes have greeted this small-scale circuit.” Still, the launch is “not going to be seamless,” as some markets will “draw well throughout the four-month season (Portland and Western New York, for instance), while others will likely face greater challenges (Chicago and New Jersey).” There is “no standard TV coverage and real-time information is difficult to come by unless you attend the games” (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 4/15).
