NWSL will play a 20-game schedule in 2015 which will run from April to September
They will take a break for the Women’s World Cup group stages
All three federations are allocating players
Allocated players will miss between 7 and 8 games for the World Cup
The schedule will feature more weekend dates; an average of 1.3 mid-week games as opposed to the 7.8 average mid-week games in the 2014 season
There will be an average of 5.9 rest days between games
The NWSL semifinal dates will be on September 12 and 13, and the final will fall on September 26 or 27. This allows for two weeks in between the semifinal and final matches. It also avoids any conflict with FIFA dates.
Overall, this schedule seems to take into account many of the complaints from players, coaches, and fans about the 2014 scheduling. What are your thoughts on the announcement?
