NWSL Expansion and College Drafts


With both the NWSL Expansion and College Drafts about two weeks away, Angel City FC continue to build their roster ahead of the inaugural 2022 season. After the team landed superstar, and LA native, Christen Press, they’ve decided to focus on the defense for their next signings. In a move announced this morning, Angel City FC have made a trade with the Chicago Red Stars. The Red Stars will receive full protection from Angel City in the upcoming Expansion Draft, meaning they won't have to worry about ACFC selecting one of their players. For Angel City, they add the playing rights for USWNT star defender/midfielder, Julie Ertz, and NWSL Defender of the Year candidate, Sarah Gorden, as well as an International Roster Spot for both 2022 and 2023.
