NWSL players upset over 9am kick off time for league final

A number of NWSL stars took to social media to express their disdain at the 09:00 kick-off time for the biggest game of the 2021 season, though the league claims it was forced to accommodate a national television slot. 

The National Women’s Soccer League announced on Sunday that Provide Park in Portland would host the 2021 Championship match on November 20 at 09:00 local time.

Several high profile athletes, including Ashlyn Harris, Ali Krieger, Rachel Corsie and Jess Fishlock, were the first to hit out at the league for scheduling a final with an early-morning start, highlighting the complications a player faces with a 5am pre-match. 

“9am KO(local time)… least we getting all nostalgic and rolling it back to those u12 days of early starts on a Sat morning! The best league, the best players, in the biggest game of the year,” Corsie wrote on Twitter. 

Orlando Pride goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris quoted Corsie’s tweet, adding, “absolutely embarrassing, NWSL do better.”
