Wednesday, February 5, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. – The W-League is pleased to announce the addition of the Braddock Road Stars Elite for the league’s 2014 season.  The franchise will be based in Northern Virginia, with more information regarding ownership, staff and the team’s first head coach to be announced in the coming weeks.

“The Braddock Road Stars Elite are an addition to the W-League that I couldn’t be more excited about,” W-League Senior Director Amanda Duffy said. “We expect the Stars Elite to continue raising our standards on and off the field and to be an impact team in the W-League for many seasons to come.”

The Stars Elite will join the Northeastern Conference, where they will face W-League powers such as the Washington Spirit Reserves and Long Island Rough Riders. The full 2014 W-League alignment and schedule is set to be announced later this week as the league enters its 20th Anniversary season.
