AEG withdrew its support for the team. The LA Sol, regular season champs, is no more.
The WPS's financial plan is not about turning a quick profit but developing a self-sustaining league. But AEG has never acted like it believed in the Sol, or women's soccer - instead, the structure around the team seemed intent on selling the women and the training staff short. This is bitterly disappointing to fans of women's soccer in LA - a city that could support two WPS teams were they located correctly and marketed well. I am too depressed about this to comment at the moment. Instead, I will gesture here towards my rant/manifesto "Notes from an Alienated Fan" and go pour myself a drink.
