Trivia[edit]

  • The longest winning start to a season was achieved by both the Los Angeles Sol in 2009 and magicJack in 2011, with three wins each.
  • The longest winning end to a season was achieved by the Western New York Flash in 2011, who finished the season with five straight wins.
  • The longest unbeaten start to a season was achieved by the Western New York Flash in 2011, who opened the campaign with eight unbeaten games (seven wins and one tie).
  • The longest unbeaten end to a season was achieved by FC Gold Pride in 2010, who closed the campaign with thirteen unbeaten games (nine wins and four ties).
  • Counting the 2011 season, no team has played in every playoff series.
    • However, if magicJack is considered to be the same team as the Washington Freedom (as its continuation), that team has qualified for every postseason.
    • Two core groups of players have played together in all three seasons and qualified for the playoffs - the Washington-magicJack core mentioned above, centered on Abby Wambach, and the Los Angeles-Gold Pride-Western New York core, centered on Marta.
  • The team to win the regular season title in both of the first two seasons has folded in the following offseason.
    • Also, the same can be said for each team to lead the league in attendance the first two seasons.
