Multiple USWNT regulars would skip NWSL Utah return plan

Despite the National Women’s Soccer League’s plans for a summer tournament in Utah, multiple U.S. national team players have considered not participating due to the health risks, according to The Washington Post.

The league is reportedly planning to hold the tournament from June 29 to around July 22 at two stadiums–the homes of NWSL’s Utah Royals FC, MLS’s Real Salt Lake and USL Championship’s Real Monarchs. The NWSL’s eighth season has been delayed amid the coronavirus pandemic, and the Post reports the tournament “would be a precursor to possibly launching the regular season in home markets late this summer or in the fall.”
