All three teams will receive full roster protection in the upcoming expansion draft.
In return for Charley and Lussi, the Thorns will also receive $100,000 in allocation money and ACFC’s natural second-round draft pick in the 2022 NWSL Draft next week. Charley had a breakout 2021 season with the Thorns, scoring five goals in 19 games for the NWSL semifinalists.
In addition to expansion draft protection, Gotham FC – who also recently traded goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan to San Diego – will receive $50,000 in allocation money.
