Finally, a women's soccer franchise in Philly

Looks like Philadelphia will take another swing at a women’s soccer franchise, as part of another attempt at a successful women’s soccer league.

This from the Philadelphia Business Journal:

Women’s Professional Soccer, a new league set to begin play next year, signed a letter of intent Tuesday to add an expansion franchise in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia team will begin play in 2010, joining seven teams set to begin play next year in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New Jersey/New York, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.

The region hasn’t yet opened it’s men’s soccer franchise in Chester and already more are swooning. Does this seem like a wise decision to anyone else?
