Orlando Pride announces 2016 roster

With their season-opener just days away, Tom Sermanni has completed his 2016 Orlando Pride roster for the upcoming inaugural season in the National Women’s Soccer League. 

Out of the 20 available roster spots, the Pride have only filled 18.

And out of the three players the Pride chose from the NWSL College Draft, only Sam Witteman signed with the club. Christina Burkenroad and Dani Weatherholt were not signed.

The team is headlined by U.S. Soccer star Alex Morgan, who is currently nursing a hip injury she sustained with the team last month during a preseason game.

The Pride kicks off their inaugural season at Providence Park against the Portland Thorns on Sunday, which is slated to start at 10 p.m. EST.

Orlando Pride 2016 Roster (19):
GOALKEEPERS (2): Aubrey Bledsoe, Ashlyn Harris
DEFENDERS (7): Laura Alleway, Josée Bélanger, Steph Catley, Kristen Edmonds, Monica Hickmann Alves, Cami Levin, Toni Pressley
