US women's football supported by National Guard

North America's National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) has partnered with the Army National Guard (ARNG), reports, www.sportspromedia.com/. ARNG becomes the nine-team league's official armed forces partner and will have the opportunity to run a military night with each club during the season, which will include tickets for ARNG members, participation in the first kick and coin toss as well as half-time presentations.

ARNG will also have an on-site presence at all matches throughout the season, including in-arena signage and public address announcements. It will rename the player of the month award, which will be known as the Army National Guard Player of the Month.

Representatives from the NWSL will also collaborate with the ARNG on its Grassroots Soccer (GRS) programme.
