NWSLPA releases statement on joint investigation following Yates report

The National Women’s Soccer League Players Association released a statement Thursday following a bombshell investigation into the NWSL.

The statement comes after a frustrating 72 hours for the NWSL in which results from an independent investigation by former U.S. Attorney General Sally Q. Yates and the law firm King & Spalding revealed emotional and sexual abuse at multiple teams, coaches and players within the sport.

The NWSLPA wrote in a statement that “The outrage is justified” in response to the research findings and that players chose to focus their anger on identifying “everything and everyone” that failed them in hopes of developing ways to prevent the behavior from happening again.
