Batten down the hatches, Boston is coming back to the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).
The NWSL announced its return to the market on Tuesday, led by an all-women local ownership group that has committed more than $100 million to the expansion club.
The Boston Breakers were a founding team in the NWSL in 2013 but abruptly folded in 2018.
A return to the city is long overdue, as one of two expected expansion sides in 2026.
The team announcement included plans for White Stadium in Franklin Park.
The Boston Unity ownership group is committing at least $30 million to the stadium renovations.
After San Diego’s loss this weekend, Alex Morgan had more than a few words for the referees.

“In what world is this not a penalty and red card, or even foul? Completely reckless and the leg going in for the tackle doesn’t even get a ball when I cut her?” she wrote on social media about a missed tackle in the box.
At the end of the match, Morgan limped off the field, though she’s since been photographed at United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) training.
“Just glad I saw her coming and didn’t plant on that leg or I’d 100% not be walking today.”
