Reign FC Megan Rapinoe is to be sold to Lyon to improve the reputation of the Franco-Club as a female football force.
The French heavyweights Lyon’s owners, OL Groupe, have nearly completed the purchase of the Reign FC, National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).
The parties have entered into negotiations on their own and expect the transaction to close before 31 January 2020. The sooner the better it will be for both the parties involved in this merger.
In the last ten years, Lyon was the dominant force in football in Europe and in six of the past nine seasons won the Women’s Champions League. He was a champion and a very respected player in the game and still is.
Feminine Triumph of the last term was the 13th consecutive title of the Lyon season.
A statement by OL Group reads: “This investment should strengthen OL’s position and further develop OL brand in the United States as a major player in women’s football around the world.” A very adept one.
The United States star Megan Rapinoe and former Midfielder Jess Fishlock are home to the winner of this year’s Women’s World Cup in France.
The team moved from Seattle to Tacoma in early 2019 and finished fourth in the normal season before losing their time in the playoffs with eventual North Carolina champions. This was very controversial and not anticipated.
Main owner of the majority Bill Predmore said, “We have always wanted to run the world’s best women’s soccer team.” Very optimistic on his behalf.
“This is a long-standing distinction from OL and makes them a perfect organization to help us reach our club goals for the long term.”
In March the NWSL 2020 season starts with something new for us to see.
