Potenial expansion to Canada?[edit]


Has there been any word yet on whether or not WPS are planning to expand into one or more Canadian cities, either by acquiring teams playing in the W-League (akin to how the Whitecaps USL-1 team will be suceeded by the MLS Vancouver team) or by setting up brand new franchises in the country (akin to the whole-cloth creation of MLS' Toronto FC)? --Nerroth (talk) 22:35, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

I haven't heard any buzz about expanding into Canada yet. Besides the three cities listed for 2010, the only other possibility I've heard of is Cary, NC. btw I was under the impression talk pages were specifically for discussing what to do with the article here. I suggest finding a forum, such as WPS on BigSoccer or the WPS Fans' Corner, for further discussion on this and other WPS topics. CyMoahk (talk) 00:43, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't know how to edit images, so could someone modify the WPS map so Missouri is highlighted as well? (Athletica is moving to Soccer Park in Fenton, Missouri as of the next home game on June 7th.) Thanks! CyMoahk (talk) 04:14, 24 May 2009 (UTC)


The map showing locations of the various teams shows Athletica to be located in Illinois. They're located in Missouri. (talk) 23:38, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Location of Champions list[edit]

I don't think it should have its own section as is at the moment. I had originally put it up top since I thought it was nice to have at the top of the page, and it filled the white space there, but looking at the Major League Soccer and Premier League pages, it looks like it should be incorporated in the history section. Sound good? CyMoahk (talk) 04:41, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Since no-one commented, I moved it up. Question though: how much of what is currently in the "history" section really counts as history? I mean, it's nice knowing about the allocation, but it seems like inappropriate information given the "history" sections for multiple other leagues. I'm thinking of rewriting it, and the "planning" section needs to be updated anyway. CyMoahk (talk) 14:59, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Sounds great CyMoahk. I'd like to see what rewrite you have in mind.Rhodesisland (talk) 11:20, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Combining yearly awards[edit]

How about creating a single page for those yearly awards? It seems so clustered to have 7 pages with on 2 single entries, all basically no article. -Koppapa (talk) 09:57, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

I just did it. Annual Women's Professional Soccer awards. Now join in to source and improve that article. -Koppapa (talk) 11:35, 14 December 2010 (UTC)


The Vancouver Whitecaps have expressed interest in joining the WPS for the 2012 season.[1]

Source seems blocked here though.

New map[edit]

Maybe I'm nuts, but I really don't think this is an improvement. First of all, the team names come in different sizes -- and the defunct teams are the ones that tend to be in the larger font. Second, the equirectangular map projection is ugly and looks weird to eyes more used to other projections. Third, it's not at all clear which teams are the current ones and which ones are defunct. I propose reverting back to the old map, which worked just fine. Powers T 00:20, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Changing the label's sizes to all be the same was agood addition. The old map wasn't optimal for having dots with no labels. Maybe one could make the two dots differ even more. -Koppapa (talk) 06:59, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Well, to be honest, I think the current map highlights the defunct teams too strongly. The grayed-out squares on the old map were certainly optional, so if that's the issue we could just remove them. I still don't like the map projection. Powers T 13:33, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
