HISTORIC UNIFICATION OF WOMEN'S FOOTBALL
EXETER, CA --- In an unprecedented panorama of unity, the most successful franchises in women's football have come together for one collective platform. For the first time in history, the best teams in the sport now eside under one umbrella: The Women's Football Alliance. This development takes effect immediately and will exhibit for the 2011 season beginning in April. Joining teams include: Bay Area Bandits, Boston Militia, Chicago Force, Dallas Diamonds, DC Divas, Kansas City Tribe, New York Sharks, Pittsburgh Passion, and the San Diego Surge. They will accompany current top
WFA teams such as the Philadelphia Liberty Belles, Columbus Comets, Lone Star Mustangs, St. Louis Slam, and the West Michigan Mayhem.
Both on and off the field, these organizations exemplify the most flourishing women's football operations, victorious records, business growth, and marketing exposure of the last decade. 11 National Championships. 14 Conference Titles. 30 Division Championships. 28 members of the Gold-Medal winning Team USA. 12 philanthropic youth programs. 5 Governor, Mayor, and City Council declarations. 4 feature films. 3 history museum exhibits and Hall of Fame inductions. 1 Emmy Award nomination. Over 8,250 community events for charity. Cumulative media exhibition on NBC Sports, ESPN, Fox Sports, ABC, CNN, CBS, Comcast Sports, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and Sports Illustrated in addition to thousands of publications in every major metropolitan region.
In the preceding decade women's football has been segmented into multiple leagues, fragmenting the highest talent pool and separating the resources required to move the sport forward. This 2011 unification and landmark growth structure echoes that of Women's Basketball and Women's Tennis. In addition to delivering fans the most competitive match-ups seen to date, this is an imperative threshold to creating a sustainable and blossoming future for the sport.
"This is an exciting time for women's football and the WFA. With 62 teams across the country working together for a common goal, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. We are looking forward to one of the most competitive seasons in women's football history," said Jeff King, WFA President.
The Women's Football Alliance is a full-contact American football league comprised of 62 teams across the United States and Mexico. From Florida to Oregon and from New England to California, the WFA is the largest and fastest growing league in America.
