Los Angeles- The National Women's Soccer League welcomes an expansion soccer team in San Diego.
On Tuesday, it was announced that San Diego was going to be getting an expansion soccer team in which Jill Ellis will serve as the president.

“This is a proud and historic moment for soccer in San Diego, Southern California and the United States,” said NWSL San Diego President Jill Ellis. “The NWSL continues to grow immensely and bringing women’s professional soccer back to San Diego, an area with a rich soccer history and passionate fanbase, will have a deep and positive impact on this community. I’m incredibly honored to lead this club forward as we prepare for play in this league next year. We aim to become a significant team globally, led by influential women, with the ability to attract the best talent throughout the world. I am eager to begin this project and look forward to leading this club as we build towards the future.”
The team will begin play in the NWSL beginning in the Spring of 2022. All other information about the club's name and logo will be announced at a later date.
