San Diego, CA (07/02/2022) – The Washington Spirit will take on expansion side San Diego Wave FC for the first time on Sunday afternoon in each side’s 11th match of the 2022 regular season at 5:00 p.m. EST at Torero Stadium.

For the first time this season, Washington will be without seven starters as they compete for the USWNT at the CONCACAF Women’s Championship in Monterrey. Not too far behind, first-place Wave FC will be without five players during the summer international window. Despite being short-handed, the Spirit will return several key players from the injury list including forward Tara McKeown and midfielder Dorian Bailey. Fans should also look out for either Devon Kerr or Nicole Barnhart to make their first start of the regular season in the absence of goalkeeper Aubrey Kingsbury.

The match will be broadcast on Paramount+ for fans in the United States and on Twitch for international viewers. Following the match, the Spirit will host a press conference with head coach Kris Ward and two players. Fans can stream the postgame presser via the Washington Spirit Twitch channel. The team will return from its second west coast trip of the season to take on the new-name Kansas City Current at Segra Field on Sunday, July 10.
