Key insights:

Perhaps inexplicably, the highest level of American professional women’s soccer, the NWSL, didn’t have a team in Southern California. The eight-team league is in major markets like Chicago and New York; Portland’s franchise draws north of 20,000 fans per game in a 25,000-seat stadium.
