Go Chelsea, Arsenal, Kharkiv, Lyon!
I didn't even know Kharkiv had a competitive women's team, impressive. Is it one of those similar to M Dynamo Kiev situations where they have like 70% of the national team members?

well, the Gunners get Barca in the group stage. That should be both entertaining and an excellent barometer for this season’s aspirations.
Barca are on another stratosphere from basically every other women's club team but it's definitely a good measuring stick for just how good this Arsenal team is because they look incredible right now.

And Tobin Heath is still a couple of weeks away from breaking into the team, per recent reports. A front 3 of Parris-Miedema-Heath is super scary.

USSF to offer USWNT and USMNT similar contracts. The article title claims “identical” contracts are being offered, yet the article also states that issues like NWSL support, maternity leave, and more USWNT-specific items may remain in that contract. We’ll see. My guess is that USSF is trying “win” the news cycle against the women’s team by hyping this as identical contracts.
