The NWSL closed out 2020 and began 2021 with a variety of trades. After a 2020 that saw the intro of the Challenge Cup and the Fall Series, the league is looking ahead with the 2021 college draft on the horizon.

During the offseason, a list of transfer reports came to fulfillment, consisting of the announcement of Sam Mewis’ move from North Carolina Courage to Manchester City. It was a move that signaled sort of a trend for U.S. nationwide group gamers as some have started to head overseas in an uncertain year.
