Indy Eleven Slate Features Five Home Matches Across June to Close Out Second Season of Action
TAMPA/INDIANAPOLIS (Tuesday, February 21, 2023) – The United Soccer League (USL) today unveiled the schedule for the 2023 USL W League season, confirming matches for all 65 teams. The second season for the elite women’s pre-professional league will kick off in May and culminate with the W League Final in mid-July.
Indy Eleven’s 2023 W League campaign will feature 10 contests against its fellow clubs in the newly created Valley Division, which includes two familiar foes in Racing Louisville FC and Kings Hammer FC (Cincinnati area) and two outfits new to the circuit in St. Charles FC (St. Louis area) and Lexington SC.
The season starts with a trio of away affairs across the month of May, starting on Wednesday, May 10, with a trip to the Saint Louis area to take on St. Charles FC. The Girls in Blue then get to finish the season with five of seven matches at their Grand Park Events Center home during a jam-packed month of June, starting with a rivalry row against Racing Louisville FC on Friday, June 2.
“We achieved a lot of goals last year, but it also didn’t end the way we wanted, so there’s plenty of motivation heading into this season. Our players are up for any challenge, and with a three-game road trip to start off 2023 we get to tackle another one straight away,” said Indy Eleven W League Head Coach Paul Dolinsky. “Getting to close out the season with the bulk of our games in front of our incredible supporters and fans will motivate us and give our girls plenty of energy to finish strong. We can’t wait to start introducing our 2023 squad and put together another season our fans and our city will be proud of.”
Single-game ticket information for home matches at the Grand Park Events Center will be released later in the spring. Like last year, Season Ticket Members for Indy Eleven USL Championship season will also receive complementary season tickets for W League games; more STM benefits and details regarding memberships can be found at indyeleven.com/season-tickets.
A total of 380 W League games are slated to be played over the course of the regular season, with each team playing 10-12 games depending up on their division. The regular season will be followed by the USL W League Playoffs, and more information about the 2023 playoff structure will be released in the coming weeks.
The league’s second season will begin on Saturday, May 6 when Stockton Cargo SC plays host to Oakland Soul SC at 4 p.m. ET, while reigning W League champions South Georgia Tormenta FC will mount their title defense beginning on May 19 against expansion side Birmingham Legion FC at 7:30 p.m. ET.
