Sky Blue FC 2019 Season Begins Today
The 2018 NWSL season was a rough one for Sky Blue. The team struggled to win games – winning only one for the entire season, and was put under the scope after reports of substandard conditions for the players came to light.
Perhaps, this year things will be better for the team overall. In fact, conditions seemed to be improving as players reportedly have better housing, Georgian Court University was announced as the team’s official training facility, and they also reported new leadership.
Today, the players are hoping for a fresh start. One that would give them their confidence back.
