Women's soccer scholarship
Women's soccer, the number one women's sport - unlike in Austria, women's soccer has an incredibly high status in the USA. 'College Soccer Games' are broadcasted daily on ESPN+. It is also not uncommon for players to play matches in front of more than 2,000 fans.

NWSL Draft

Every year, between 30-50 female soccer players make the leap from college soccer to the NWSL.

Fans

While the NWSL had an average attendance of about 8,000 fans per game in 2019, the Austrian Bundesliga had around 6,300 all games on a weekend in the same season.

NATIONALTEAM

Nearly 90%, or 18 out of the 23 players on the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team, were actively involved in college soccer before joining the national team.

I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I was integrated into the team. My teammates have been very supportive from day one.
