The players from Portland Thorns FC have selected Mimi’s Fresh Tees to play for in the 2020 Verizon Community Shield. The Verizon Community Shield is a partnership between the National Women’s Soccer League and Verizon, where each of the NWSL’s nine clubs will partner with small businesses or programs in their community. The team with the most points at the end of the Fall Series will be awarded the Verizon Community Shield and the opportunity to present a grant of $25,000 to their community partner, made possible by Verizon. $15,000 and $10,000 will be presented to the second and third-place teams, respectively.
Heading into their final match Saturday against OL Reign (5pm PT, Twitch), the Thorns currently sit atop the standings with seven points and a +6 goal differential.
