Red Stars return Sept. 12
The National Women’s Soccer League announced the schedule for the first three weeks of its fall series, with the nine teams divided into three pods to minimize travel.
The Red Stars are grouped with the Washington Spirit and Sky Blue FC. Their first two games are on the road Sept. 12 against the Spirit and at home Sept. 20 against Sky Blue.
