NWSL Angel City FC has agreed to a two-year partnership with Tigres Femenil of Mexico’s Liga MX Femenil, marking the "first cross-border relationship of its kind between clubs in North America’s two biggest women’s soccer leagues," according to Kevin Baxter of the L.A. TIMES. The partnership will "include two friendlies," the first at Banc of California Stadium on Aug. 10 and the second in Monterrey, Mexico, next season. The organizations also will "cooperate in other endeavors, engaging ideas on best practices in sport and on issues of business and social responsibility." Angel City said that a major focus of the partnership is "community-impact events featuring fans, civic organizations and soccer clubs in the two cities." Angel City "won’t be the first NWSL club to play a Mexican side," but they are the "first to make the game the center of a larger undertaking involving other public events" (L.A. TIMES, 5/24).
