5 coolest Instagram posts announcing 2019 NWSL kick-off

April 13, 2019 By Ali M.
The new National Women's Soccer League campaign is upon us. Here are the best social media posts to celebrate its return.

The return of the National Women's Soccer League is upon us! The new NWSL campaign is set to begin today on Saturday, April 13, with two simultaneous kick-offs.

In one of those two ties, reigning champion North Carolina Courage will embark on their title defense with Chicago Red Stars. This will be a home affair for Paul Riley's side as the venue will be none other than the Sahlen's Stadium in North Carolina.

The other fixture will Sky Blue FC make the trip to Washington Spirit. The visitor will be keen on kicking things off with a win in Maryland after their atrocious campaign last season.

Ahead of the new season, many of the league's biggest names have taken to social media to hype up the return of the National Women's Soccer League. The clubs and fans joined in as well in the build-up to what should be another promising campaign.

Sky Blue FC star and USWNT icon Carli Lloyd took to Instagram to express her excitement. Orlando Pride ace Sydney Leroux, on the other hand, will not take part for a while due to her pregnancy and thus admitted she will miss being out there with her team-mates.

Going to miss being out on the field with my girls! Until then we’ll be cheering hard and we’ll be back real soon... just with another crazy kid.

Thank you @ussoccerfoundation for a great night at your gala. So amazing to hear all you are doing around the country. It’s also a fitting picture because NWSL starts tomorrow and our first game is against this one. See you tomorrow @cdunn19!

And finally, in a lovely video on North Carolina Courage's official Instagram account, Lynn Williams sat down for a personal interview in the She’s Brilliant Video Campaign to talk about her path to the beautiful game.
