It appears that the Carolina Railhawks of USL1 want to bring professional women’s soccer back to the old Carolina Courage home in Cary, NC. I would like to analyze this a bit more later, until then enjoy the article.

“In three WUSA seasons before the league went out of business, the Courage averaged 5,255 fans per game in 2001 in Chapel Hill, 5,839 in 2002 after moving to what was then called SAS Stadium in Cary, and 5,737 in 2003.”

“As far as WPS is concerned, the market and the stadium already meet the new league’s requirements.”

“In 2010, any team looking to get into WPS would initially have to put up $1.25 million, Antonucci said.”
