National Women’s Soccer League Announces Boston Franchise to Play at White Stadium

Boston has been awarded a new National Women's Soccer League expansion franchise that will play at Franklin Park's White Stadium starting in 2026. The ownership team, Boston Unity Soccer Partners, plans to unveil the club’s team name as it moves closer to play in 2026. Ownership plans to invest significant resources to transform White Stadium into a top-tier facility, and is working with the city's leadership to do so, according to a press release. The transformation of White Stadium fits well with the city's goals for the stadium and Franklin Park. In July, city officials held a public meeting to discuss revitalizing the stadium to make it the "centerpiece of Boston Public Schools athletics."
