It’s been a year since this WoSo Stats project went live! To be precise, it’s been a year and two days since this tweet, when I first went public with this project.
A year later, we have over 100 matches in this project’s database, and are 75% complete with logging the NWSL 2016 season.
None of this would have been possible without the incredible, hard work of the dedicated volunteers behind this project. There have been dozens that have helped out, some for one or two matches, and some for far more, but each of them have helped us better understand this beautiful game.
It’s been a humbling experience seeing how eager fans have been to help do something that hasn’t been done before in women’s soccer. I truly believe that the growth of women’s soccer could be one of the next generation’s most interesting, fascinating stories in sports. In the meanwhile, we’ve got an NWSL season to finish, and even bigger hopes for this year.
