NWSL Off-season: Trades, Lists & Expansions

In episode #305 of the Mixxed Zone, Jen “The Keeper” Cooper starts the NWSL off-season with one last look at the NWSL Fall Series and also discusses the recent trades and the upcoming expansion draft for Racing Louisville FC.

This episode features one long chat with Dan Lauletta of EqualizerSoccer.com. Jen and Dan cover many NWSL topics — the impact of the Fall Series, how the Louisville expansion draft will be different from previous NWSL drafts and thoughts on what 2021 will look like for the league.

This week’s “Jensplaining” segment covers the protocols and procedures related to the biggest event of the NWSL off-season — November 12 expansion draft for Racing Louisville FC.
