NEW YORK - The Commissioner of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL), Jeff Plush, announced on Monday morning that the NWSL would have a new Nike Wet T-Shirt Weekend in an attempt to bolster crowds for the league with attendance down as many of the international stars are gone on international duty for the upcoming Olympic tournament.
"We know what our fans want to see and it's a whole weekend of our player getting hosed down by continuously running sprinklers while they run about on the field trying to play soccer," stated Plush to The Nutmeg News on Monday.
"We are working with Nike who is creating a new fabric that really accentuates the female body while being completely transparent when touched by water, with the exception of swoosh branding that will show up on the back when the jersey is see-through. Now we can really say that we have nearly naked amateurs on the main field!"
According to some league insiders this "Nike Wet T-Shirt Weekend" idea was the genesis for the small field that was utilized for the recent Western New York Flash v Seattle Reign game as the NWSL management committee realized that what fans needed was a smaller field to allow them to gawk openly at the players as they ran by in nearly nude conditions.
"We are giving back to our fans by giving those fans who pay for field seats our NWSL branded Super Soakers for them to utilize on our players. It's going to be great, sexy and fun for the whole family," stated the NWSL press release.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as it is actually considered by the NWSL.
