It ism sorta. Kind of like in the NFL with the Browns-Ravens. The Ravens were BASICALLY an expansion team, but could only have Browns' players. Same here in that the players are moving to Utah, but unlike with the Browns, there is no agreement to replace and pick back up FCKC at a future date.

And multiple sources are saying FCKC are done. League stays at 10 teams for 2018.

Let's hope we don't get the team named Real Salt Lake Women or anything else cheesy.

Reports are also coming about that the Barcelona group & the potential Atlanta group might be granted expansion teams just before the start of the 2018 season to join in 2019. Barcelona is looking at playing in the Bay Area now instead of San Diego.

Mia Hamm was recently asked about a NWSL in Los Angeles(Hamm is co-owner of LAFC) and she replied with "they're working it. We'll have an update soon".

So possibly the league could have Barcelona(Bay Area) & Atlanta join in 2019 with Los Angeles and possibly Minnesota join in 2020.

EAST: Boston, NJ SkyBlue, Washington, Atlanta, Orlando, North Carolina, Chicago
WEST: Seattle, Portland, Bay Area, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Houston, Minnesota

First I've heard of a team for Minnesota. Nice though. Not having a team in San Diego is just stupid with the history of soccer in general (Sockers) and women's soccer with the SeaLions among others.

More teams the better!!!

Interesting news today as FCKC has opened up season ticket sales for the 2018 season. maybe Sporting KC is coming through after all?

League sent out a post that FCKC has ceased operations and all player contracts have been moved to the Utah team. FCKC is dead. Hopefully Sporting wants to make an expansion team and they can market the women's team well and actually get folks to show up. The folks that ran FCKC into the ground, much like the marketing/advertising folks at Chicago, Boston and Sky Blue, suffer from Rectal-Cranial Inversion.
