Touting "economically viable, sustainable model," USL set to debut women’s pro league

Charles Boehm reports for The Soccer Wire that the USL is set to put together a professional women's league, the "W-PRO" (homepage with a little animation). This is obviously fantastic news for us Sounders fans, as Seattle has become home to seemingly half the U.S. National Team (Seattle must be one of those "other places around the globe" Boehm refers to). However, there does not appear to be any indication of which teams exactly would be joining the W-PRO, though the W-League website is advertising franchising opportunities. Hopefully, from the ashes of the WPS we can finally have the strong women's league that our players and fans deserve.
