Constangy attorney Chris Deubert published a June 26 Law360 article on how the PGA Tour Inc. and LIV Golf Inc. calling off litigation and operating professional golf in the U.S. and Europe could foreshadow the future of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and the United Soccer League (USL).
The article discusses the difficulties that both the NWSL and USL may face as they both try to operate successful and sustainable Division I women’s professional leagues based on the history of other sports leagues.
