With Hurricane Florence approaching North Carolina this week, the NWSL and the North Carolina Courage said on Monday that they are closely monitoring the situation and potential impacts to Sunday’s semifinal game in North Carolina.
The Courage are scheduled to host the Chicago Red Stars at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina, on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
“We are closely monitoring the weather forecasts and are in contact with the North Carolina Courage and the Chicago Red Stars. Our primary concern is for public safety, and we are following a thorough process to be prepared in the event the storm impacts the Chicago at North Carolina semifinal,” the league said in a statement.
“The club is in contact with the league and the visiting team. The safety and well-being of fans, players and event staff is the club’s priority,” the Courage said.
