The National Women's Soccer League is "in advanced discussions" to add three expansion franchises, according to Jessica Toonkel and Rachel Bachman of the Wall Street Journal.

Boston, Utah and the San Francisco Bay Area are the three locations of the new clubs. Utah and the Bay Area teams will begin play in 2024, with Boston's club set to debut at a later date, per Toonkel and Bachman.

The San Francisco and Boston ownership groups have each agreed to pay a record-setting $50 million expansion fee. The Utah ownership group will pay between $2 million and $5 million, a rate which was previously agreed upon, according to Toonkel and Bachman.

An NWSL spokesperson wouldn't confirm the report, but stated the league remains "engaged in our expansion process and are excited about our prospects."

Boston's all-female investment group includes Jennifer Epstein, the daughter of Boston Celtics co-owner Robert Epstein, and San Francisco's investment group includes former United States women's national team stars Brandi Chastain, Aly Wagner, Leslie Osborne and Danielle Slaton.
