List of National Women's Soccer League stadiums
The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) is the highest-level professional soccer league for women in the United States. The league has had a maximum of 10 teams, reaching that number in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, and has had 9 teams in each subsequent season to date. It is currently scheduled to return to 10 teams in 2021. As of the league's next season in 2020, eight of the teams tentatively plan to use a single stadium for all home games. The remaining team, the Washington Spirit, will split its 12 home matches evenly between three stadiums in its region.
The highest attendance in the league's history occurred on August 11, 2019 at Providence Park when 25,218 people watched Portland Thorns FC defeat the North Carolina Courage 2–1 in a regular-season home match.
Originally, many NWSL teams rented university stadiums. As the league has grown, NWSL teams have increasingly used MLS stadiums, either by MLS ownership of NWSL team or increased cooperation between existing NWSL and MLS teams.
