This week in women’s football people around the globe will enjoy plenty of club action, including the NWSL Final, top games from European leagues and Liga MX Femenil’s regular-season finale.

How to watch NWSL Final: Washington Spirit vs. Chicago Red Stars

The NWSL Final will see the Washington Spirit clash against the Chicago Red Stars, two sides that overcame different types of adversities to reach the final stage.

Washington Spirit former head coach Richie Burke was fired by the league in August following an investigation into allegations of harassment and the development of toxic work culture under his watch. However, interim manager Kris Ward restored the locker room’s morale and led the team to a third-place finish.

On the other hand, head coach Rory Dames’s Chicago Red Stars went 4-1-2 in the last two months of the NWSL regular season and secured a spot in the playoffs. Chicago was not considered to be a playoff contender at times during the season due to inconsistent results, but the squad managed to stun the competition and reach the final. The Red Stars defeated favorites to win it all, the Portland Thorns. 

CBS will broadcast the final live on TV in Canada and the USA. People who do not live in Canada or the USA can watch the final live on the NWSL’s Twitch channel.

Therefore, Guadalajara can overtake Atlas with a win if Atlas falls to Puebla.
