Racing Louisville FC to face U of L women’s soccer team in training

The snow and cold have not stopped preseason activities for Racing Louisville FC, as the team announced its five-game preseason schedule on Thursday, which features a match this Saturday against the University of Louisville women’s soccer team. The newest edition to the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) will also play Vanderbilt (March 7), West Virginia (March 13) and closes on a two-game series against Florida State scheduled for March 24 and 28.

“The weather’s just turned, so we got blue skies,” said Racing Louisville coach Christy Holly. “I think we should make it a couple of good, long weeks where we can get a lot of work done with the team, which is very exciting.”

Holly stressed the importance of making sure the U of L women’s team was on the schedule and hopes that the exhibition can forge the kind of connection between the two programs that would continue to grow the sport of soccer in the city.
