Welcome to Her Pitch
News and Features about the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL), United States Women's National Team (USWNT), and Women's Soccer/Football/Futbol around the world
Summer Wednesdays of WoSo (WoW?) continue on 7/11, the luckiest day of the year. Six of nine teams are in action tonight, but Brooke Elby and the Red Stars are off until Saturday. Try to find some way to entertain yourself, Brooke.
Scotland v Belarus!
Happy 4th of July (and related weekend), America! Five NWSL games over the next five days should make your celebration worthy of the better USA we’re all trying to build.
It’s the last weekend in June, and the Men’s World Cup is boring. (Ron Howard voice: It isn’t boring.) As an antidote to your boredom, you can watch SEVEN NWSL games over the next five days. Or, better yet, GO TO A GAME!
Northern Ireland v Netherlands had 5 goals. 5 goals all in one direction.
Tobin Heath is questionable this weekend. But on a hot Friday night in Houston, you know she’ll be ready to go. Let’s get ready for FUTBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL!
The NWSL is BACK! Four matches today, with the Game of the Week at 8PM on ESPNEWS. Somehow that station is pronounced, “ESPN News,” but I’m calling it “ESP News” because that’s what it says. Without apparent irony, “The ESP News that Killed Her” is tonight’s Lifetime movie.
KSK Heist’s Emma Coolen, in her own words (and pictures, and a video) on her Fangirl past, present and future.
The FIFA break is OVER! Oh, except, NO, IT IS NOT OVER. So who might be available to play NWSL football tonight? Between International Duty and Injuries, not many players. Let’s take a look.
You want a BROON shirt, don’t you? Oh, and you want to watch some friendlies between the USA and China. Let’s go to Utah and Cleveland!
Five matches this week in the NWSL. But there’s only nine teams. How’s that going to work? Have Courage, friends. There is a solution.
The UEFA Women’s Champions League Final ended Wolfsburg 1-4 Olympique Lyonnais. Daniela Porcelli was there to capture the action.
Seven Games by Sunday. SEVEN GAMES BY SUNDAY!!! Plus the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final! And a rant about gender bias! Did this just get awkward?
FA WSL Action: Bristol City v Arsenal. OK, it was mostly just Arsenal.
The Thorns beat the Spirit 1-0, and the world was treated to a special celebration of Ellie Carpenter’s first NWSL goal.
This continent isn’t big enough for Her Pitch. Let’s go to Europe with our new Swiss collaborator, photographer Daniela Porcelli!
Four matches on Saturday will have your internet provider crying at all the bandwidth you’re dedicating to Go90. Cry away, Verizon. Cry away.
So many sweet, sweet pictures of the Dash v Thorns clash from Wednesday night.
SIX games get started quickly with TWO on Wednesday, then another FOUR on Saturday. I’m not sure if capitalizing number words makes it more exciting, but let’s get to it.
Two doses of Sam Kerr this week, peeps. Let’s get started with some Wednesday football.
Hope you didn’t fall in love with the look of your team through the first month of the season, because changes are coming. Changes in the form of long lost top internationals returning to the fold. Top internationals like Sam Kerr and Marta (but not Raso; she’s broken). Welcome to COG 5.
We've got SIX games to enjoy over the next few days. Pay your broadband bill and buckle up—COG 4 starts on Wednesday night!
The FIFA break is OVER! Except, you know, all the international tournaments still happening that are keeping some of our favorites out of the country. But at least (most of) the NWSL is BACK!
Hey look! Sky Blue gets to play this week! Get set for BLOB—no—COG 2!
We're back! Though I stand with Megan Oyster's silent crossed-arm protest of the demise of the Boston Breakers, it's time to move forward. Let's get ready for yellow cards!
