That’s right ladies, not only will 2010 be the return of professional men’s soccer to Philadelphia, but it will also be the inaugural season for a professional women’s soccer team.

The newly formed Women’s Professional Soccer league will be bringing a franchise to Philadelphia for its second professional season in 2010. The team, which will be officially the 8th team in WPS, will also take up residence in the to-be-constructed stadium in Chester, which is home to the yet-to-be-named men’s team.

The WPS will begin its inaugural season in 2009 with seven current franchises and hope to expand to 10 by 2010. The seven franchises currently getting ready to take the pitch this season are:

Besides Philadelphia, WPS is looking at Atlanta and Dallas as possible expansion locations.

The WPS schedule starts March 29th when the LA Sol take on the Washington Freedom.
