The NWSL and NWHL have long been crossover supporters and season 6 will be no different. The Metropolitan Riveters are excited to announce that Sky Blue FC will have their faces in the crowd at Herb Brooks Arena.
“Any chance we have to support our local area teams we are all for,” said Sky Blue General Manager Alyse LaHue. “This is a super fun initiative so we can be there in spirit supporting the Rivs in their 2021 campaign. Having been through a bubble situation ourselves, we know how important it is to feel the support from back home and from our fans. We hope this helps provide a sense of a ‘home rink’ advantage!”
Representing Sky Blue with cutouts in the seats at Lake Placid will be GM Alyse LaHue and eleven of the soccer team’s top players:
Nicole Baxter, Imani Dorsey, Estelle Johnson, Gina Lewandowski,
Carli Lloyd, Paige Monaghan, Ifeomo Onumonu, Midge Purce,
Kailen Sheridan, Evelyne Viens and McCall Zerboni
“This is such a powerful example of the best of women’s sports,” said Riveters captain Madison Packer. “Female athletes do not have the same exposure or representation as our male counterparts. To have the faces of these strong, influential women of the NWSL’s Sky Blue FC in the stands at Lake Placid for our NWHL season will be monumental. I am pumped to look up and see these game-changing athletes watching us and look forward to continuing to tune in to support Sky Blue in their run for a championship this upcoming season.”
