The Ocean City Nor'easters will host a W-League women's professional soccer game at Carey Stadium in Ocean City on Sunday.
The New York Magic and Washington Spirit will kick off at 4 p.m. The W-League is the first and longest-standing women's soccer league in North America.
The 2013 W-League season features 25 teams in three regional conferences playing 12 regular-season matches. Featuring current and former international and professional stars, the W-League also provides elite amateurs the opportunity to compete while maintaining their eligibility as college student-athletes.
The Magic (3-4-2) handed the Spirit (5-1-1) their only loss of the season.
"It is great to be able to host a W-League game for our supporters," Nor'easters general manager Neil Holloway said in a statement.
"It will be a lot of fun to see these two teams go head-to-head."
We hope that as many young, female players come out to this game in our south Jersey region as it is an important part of their player development. Our youth development partner Jersey Premier Soccer is promoting this game amongst all the girls they know to make sure that there is a great atmosphere, worthy of the professional game on show."
