Red Stars Announce Protected & Unprotected Players Ahead of 2015 Expansion Draft

CHICAGO, Ill. – The Chicago Red Stars today announced the club’s lists of protected and unprotected players ahead of the 2015 Expansion Draft on Monday, Nov. 2.  The Orlando Pride will become the tenth club to join the NWSL when they begin play in 2016.

Orlando will be able to select up to ten (10) players in the Expansion Draft, though no club can lose more than two players. The results of the Expansion Draft will be announced via social media starting at 12 p.m. (ET).

As a playoff club, the Chicago Red Stars were able to protect nine players. Each team is allowed to protect up to two (2) U.S. allocated players, therefore the Red Stars are able to protect their two remaining USWNT players, Christen Press and Julie Johnston. Any additional U.S. allocated players on a team’s roster must be left unprotected. The Pride will be allowed to select no more than two (2) U.S. allocated players.

Lori Chalupny, who recently just retired from international play, has yet to make a decision on continuing to play in the NWSL next season.
