Two season-long unbeaten streaks remain unbroken in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), with the 13th match weekend fast approaching.

More Details

League leaders Kansas City and Orlando will attempt to keep the good vibes going this weekend, as the Current host Chicago and the Pride travel to North Carolina.

While Kansas City and Orlando have been the gold standard this year, they’re still several wins away from tying Washington’s record for the longest unbeaten streak in a single NWSL season.

The Spirit rattled off 20 results without a loss in 2021, en route to the club’s first NWSL championship.

That tally might be difficult to replicate, especially as Kansas City and Orlando are set to face off for the first time this season on July 6th.
