Orlando Pride part ways with former NWSL president Amanda Duffy


The Orlando Pride have parted ways with executive vice president Amanda Duffy, the club announced Monday.

“After acquiring the Orlando Pride during the 2021 season, the Wilf family has been in the process of evaluating the club’s structure and operations to best position it moving forward, both on and off the field,” the club wrote in a statement.

“As part of that process, the club has parted ways with Amanda Duffy. The club would like to thank Amanda for her contributions over the last two seasons.”

The Wilf family, who also own the Minnesota Vikings, bought the club from longtime owner Flávio Augusto da Silva in May.

When the NWSL announced a “commitment to systemic transformation” in the wake of the allegations of abuse by former coach Paul Riley, Duffy was named to the NWSL’s executive committee. The committee is currently overseeing multiple investigations as well as reform initiatives meant to protect NWSL players and staff.

Previously, Duffy served as the NWSL’s president from 2019 through 2020 before joining the Orlando Pride.

It was previously announced that interim coach Becky Burleigh would also be parting ways with the Pride.
