Newest football team for the NWSL will call Banc of California Stadium home
Los Angeles- Angel City has decided to make Banc of California Stadium home for the 2022 start of their season.
This year, the NWSL expanded their league, adding a new team in the Los Angeles area that is co-owned by Natalie Portman and other influential women in sports. Each of these women wanted to support women and give them a platform to showcase their talents.
"Announcing our venue partner is a major milestone for Angel City, and we could not be more excited than to play in this spectacular venue right here in the heart of Los Angeles," said ACFC Founder and President, Julie Uhrman. "We are building a club for all Los Angelenos, united in their support of women's soccer and the magic that L.A. brings to its fans, players, and teams.”
"From the beginning, we set out to build a Club where everyone was welcome -- a Club that would strive to unite the world's city through the world's game," LAFC Co-President Larry Freedman said. "We are thrilled to welcome our new partners, Angel City FC, to our family, to our home, and to their new home. We look forward to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with ACFC to create great experiences here in the Heart of Los Angeles."
