The Sol and Washington Freedom open the inaugural Women’s Professional Soccer season Sunday at Home Depot Center.
I took a look at the league and the grass roots marketing strategy being employed in this week’s column.
Updated: BTW, today is Shannon Boxx Day in the city of Torrance; the Sol midfielder, who grew up in Torrance, will be honored at tonight’s City Council meeting, which begins at 7 o’clock at City Hall, 3031 Torrance Blvd.
Coincidentally, the South High girls team, which Boxxy played for between 1991 and 1995, will also receive a certificate of recognition tonight for winning the CIF-SS Division 5 Championship. How’s that for motivation?
