A spokesperson for the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) stated that the league was waiting to see if any of the other teams within the league are planning on going out of business before the league releases the 2018 schedule.
"We need to keep costs low," stated managing director of operations Amanda Duffy. "If another team goes out of business we would have to re-print the promotional calendars that we are distributing to realtors in the Orlando area."
According to sources within the league, after losing Western New York Flash, the Boston Breakers and FC Kansas City within the last 3 seasons, the league put an emphasis on ensuring that they wait to see if any other teams are going to go out of business.
"It's important for us to do a health and well being check with each of the teams in the league before we release the schedule," stated Carla Holman of the NWSL. "We need to ensure that we aren't going to release the schedule and then find out that Sky Blue are completely insolvent. Wait.... Sky Blue ARE still around, right? Someone put in a call!"
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the dramatic fluctuations of a nascent league prove troublesome for the soul of women's soccer fans across the nation.
