Former U.S. women’s national team members Heather O’Reilly and Lori Lindsey will join forces on a new women’s soccer show.
“Played In,” which will debut Monday on SiriusXM, will follow the NWSL season and the road to the 2023 World Cup. The weekly show will air at 7 p.m. ET each Monday on soccer channel SiriusXM FC.
The debut episode will preview the upcoming NWSL season, which kicks of on March 25.
“First of all, I am excited to be working with Lori again,” O’Reilly said. “We were teammates on the US Women’s National Team for years and had approximately one million laughs together on trips and at the World Cup.
“I’m also thrilled to help bring women’s soccer to the masses with ‘Played In.’ The women’s game is growing at an unprecedented rate globally, and it is important that listeners are kept in the conversation on SiriusXM, a platform with such a large reach.”
O’Reilly made 231 appearances for the USWNT from 2002-16, with 47 goals and 55 assists in her international career. She helped the team to three Olympic gold medals and the 2015 World Cup championship. The midfielder also played six NWSL seasons, for the North Carolina Courage and the now-defunct Boston Breakers and FC Kansas City.
After the USWNT lost a third consecutive match in November, O’Reilly made waves when she slammed the team’s effort in the defeat.
Her co-host and former USWNT teammate Lindsey made 31 appearances for the national team. She played on the 2011 World Cup squad and served as an alternate for the 2012 Olympic gold medal-winning team.
