Here is an update from Reign FC (essentially a summary of the team’s most recent Facebook post from late Tuesday):
* * *
— The team is back from its preseason trip to Japan. Training resumes Thursday at Starfire, though a few national team players will be gone Kaylyn Kyle, Emily Zurrer, Tiffany Cameron (Canada) and Jess Fishlock (Wales).
— Seventeen players are under contract, check out the Facebook page for a reminder. A few of them, we know, are unavailable: e.g. Megan Rapinoe (on loan in France until June), Amy Rodriguez (starting a family). The final roster can be up to 21 players and must be settled by April 5, so the team says to expect some signings by the end of this week and into next week.
— Here is some ticket information. Season tickets are on sale. If you have those already, they’ll be mailed out the week of April 22. Four-game packages go on sale on April 1. Single-game tickets go on sale April 8.
— Regarding merchandise, scarves and t-shirts will be available online beginning April 8.
— A team website should be ready to go for the start of the season.
— The team is not working on a local television deal, but games will be streamed in high definition on YouTube. Other NWSL teams will be streaming games, too, so road games should be available.
