Minnesota Women’s Soccer Becomes First Community-Owned Women’s Team In U.S.

September 1, 2021

Minnesota Women’s Soccer, a pre-professional team, started selling community ownership shares on Wednesday, becoming the first women’s sports team in the country to be community-owned.

The team is one of the founding members of the USL W League, which has the goal of strengthening the pipeline between college and professional soccer and in turn increase opportunity and gender equity within the sport. College players who have their season in the fall will have the chance to play in the league during the spring and summer, together with former women’s soccer players and even athletes from Europe.
