GERMANTOWN, Md. (Mar. 15, 2013) – The Washington Spirit announced Friday that individual tickets to all NWSL regular season games are now available for purchase, including the inaugural 2013 home opener against the Western New York Flash on April 20. Individual ticket prices range from $20 to $25 each in small quantities and $15 to $18 for groups of 10 or more.
U.S. Women’s National Team star Abby Wambach and the rest of the Flash will pay a visit to the Maryland SoccerPlex as the Spirit play their first-ever home game of the National Women’s Soccer League season on April 20, with kickoff at 7:00 p.m. Fans wishing for the best seats are urged to act quickly, as only a few tickets remain in the preferred “Home Side” of the 4,500-capacity stadium. The club has also sold over 500 season ticket packages to date, with most being in four VIP Reserved sections also on the Home Side.
After opening the season on the road April 14 at Boston, the Spirit host games on four consecutive Saturday nights at their award winning Maryland SoccerPlex Stadium, with the April 20 game the first back at the intimate venue for Abby Wambach since she played two seasons there with the Washington Freedom.
Following the opener are: April 27 vs. Sky Blue FC of New Jersey, May 4 vs. Portland Thorns FC, and May 11 vs. Boston Breakers. All games kickoff at 7:00 p.m., with gates opening at 6:00 p.m.
Fans also don’t have to wait until the season officially begins to catch the Spirit. The team begins a 5-game preseason exhibition series against five top college programs, beginning with a game this Sunday, March 17 when they host Penn State, the 2012 College Cup Finalists. Additional games include 3/24 vs. Duke, 3/30 vs. North Carolina, 4/3 vs. Maryland, and 4/6 vs. Virginia. All tickets are free at https://tickets.washingtonspirit.com.
