The other football: Phoenix soccer heads across the pond

The Phoenix women’s soccer team is playing that other kind of football in London this week, having arrived Wednesday (June 12) for nine days of training, games, team bonding, sightseeing and more. Their trip will feature three “friendlies” (exhibition games), as well as a visit to British Premier League club Chelsea FC and its training facilities. The team will train daily at Regent’s Park, a 395-acre park in central London, according to the Wisconsin Soccer Central website. To keep up with the team, check out its Facebook page. Further details of the trip are available there, and here.
