CHICAGO (May 4, 2021) – The National Women’s Soccer League announced today that its independent investigator has completed the investigation into an incident that occurred on April 9, 2021 in Houston.
The investigation was conducted under the NWSL Anti-Harassment Policy for a Safe Work Environment, available here. Following multiple interviews with witnesses and a review of the venue security footage, the investigation was closed. Based on the findings of the independent investigator, no disciplinary action will be taken against the club. Because of the confidentiality restrictions in the policy, the league will not have further comment on the investigation itself or the outcome other than to thank those who came forward with their concerns and those who participated in the investigation.
The NWSL remains committed to fostering a safe work environment for players and staff, free from harassment, racial bias and discrimination of any kind, and as previously announced is developing mandatory, league-wide training to support that commitment.
