The NWSL preseason began on Monday and the league’s nine teams announced their preseason rosters.

 

A number of players are not yet in camp because of international duty (Algarve Cup, SheBelieves, Cyprus Cup). Those players are listed with “NYR” (not yet reported to camp) next to their names. Several players will also report late to camp because of the W-League Grand Final, which took place in Australia on Sunday. Additional details about each roster can be found by clicking each team’s name on the list below.

Ahead of releasing their roster, the Thorns announced the re-signings of seven players: Celeste Boureille, Britt Eckerstrom, Adrianna Franch, Meg Morris, Hayley Raso, Katherine Raynolds and Mallory Weber.
