⚽️Angel City FC: Our new pro women’s soccer team isn’t expected to start NWSL play until 2022, but we know who will be leading the charge. News broke yesterday that Freya Coombe, current head coach of NJ/NY Gotham FC, will be ACFC’s first head coach. Herstory.

🏈Box scores: In NFL preseason action, the Rams lost 17–16 to the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday while the Chargers fell to the San Francisco 49ers 15–10 last night.
