Amanda Duffy named president of NWSL

The National Women’s Soccer League has announced that Amanda Duffy has been promoted to the role of president.

Duffy has been with the US’ top-tier women’s football competition for two years, joining as managing director of operations in January 2017, before becoming the managing director for the league in 2018. She was a driving factor behind the creation of NWSL Media, the league’s commercial arm.

As president, she will oversee the NWSL’s day-to-day operations and work with the league’s owners on the strategic direction and objectives for the competition, as women’s football continues to grow in the United States.

“Amanda has been instrumental in operating the league as managing director,” said NWSL executive committee chair Steve Malik. “She’s an extremely talented professional and we feel that she will continue to foster the league’s growth as president. As we look to the future, her experience and talents are a great fit for taking the league to the next level.”
