It's Time to Begin

Season 3 starts May 18th

WSA Winnipeg kicks off its 3rd season against the Des Moines Menace on May 18th on the road. With a maturing roster that features talented newcomers, promoted academy players and players returning from injury, the team is hoping to push for the PDL playoffs this year.

"I believe that we are better team then we were last year. The players have more experience with each other and we have some exciting new players" said Coach Eduardo Badescu. "But you don't really know where you stand as a team until you face real competition. Des Moines should provide us with a good test to see where we stand."

Off the Field

On May 1st, WSA Winnipeg had a press conference announcing its 2013 rosters as well as new off-the-field initiatives. The club announced a new youth sponsorship agreement with Boston Pizza. The club also announced it would be partnering again with the Manitoba Major Soccer League (MMSL) to bring inner city youth to one of its home games. The Manitoba Soccer Association and the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association were also on hand. All these soccer organizations working together shows that there is an unprecedented level of cooperation amongst all those involved in the sport in Manitoba to help grow the game.
