WPS: St Louis Athletica Folds

Short ‘n sweet. Here’s the official announcement.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 27, 2010) – The Saint Louis Athletica in Women’s Professional Soccer are shutting down their franchise as a funding crisis has left the team without the necessary funds to operate for the 2010 WPS Season. The Athletica players will be available as free agents to other WPS teams as of Tuesday, June 1.

I am saddened and outraged by this loss and will have more to say about it in a future article. My heart goes out to the Saint Louis fans.
