NWSL Announces Full 2021 Regular Season Schedule
Regular season concludes on October 31; 2021 NWSL Championship set for Nov. 20

CHICAGO (April 27, 2021) — The National Women’s Soccer League has revealed the full schedule for the upcoming 2021 regular season.

The league’s ninth season includes 10 teams set to face off in a single table, 24-game regular season – with 12 home games and 12 away games per club. Full broadcast details will be announced in the coming days.

Three matches highlight opening day of the regular season on May 15. Kansas City NWSL and Racing Louisville FC, the league’s newest clubs, kick off the season with a matchup at Lynn Family Stadium while newly rebranded NJ/NY Gotham FC and 2020 Challenge Cup Champion Houston Dash ring in the new season when the two teams square off at Red Bull Arena. OL Reign is set to take on 2018 and 2019 league champion North Carolina Courage in the opening-day finale at Cheney Stadium.

Rounding out the first weekend of play, the Orlando Pride host the Washington Spirit at Exploria Stadium May 16 while the 2020 Fall Series-winning Portland Thorns FC welcome the Chicago Red Stars.

Week Two will feature three home openers on May 22. Chicago welcomes the Red Stars home as they take on NJ/NY Gotham FC at SeatGeek Stadium, while the Courage host Orlando at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park and the Houston Dash face off against Kansas City NWSL at BBVA Stadium.

Portland and OL Reign close out Week Two with the first Cascadia battle of the season between the two clubs May 23 at Providence Park.

The NWSL regular season will not break for the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games, and will conclude on October 31, with two matches between NJ/NY Gotham FC and Racing Louisville, and Houston at Washington. The top six teams at the end of the regular season will advance to the expanded NWSL Playoffs, with the top two seeds receiving a first-round bye. The league will close out the 2021 campaign with the 2021 NWSL Championship on Nov. 20.
