The 2023 NWSL season could give even Hollywood’s biggest stars a run for their money – and Nike thinks the league has what it takes to compete with the best at the Golden Globes.
The American sportswear brand have submitted this season’s NWSL to the Golden Globes for the ‘Best Television Series, Drama’ category after eight months of prime entertainment.
This was one of the most competitive and nail-biting seasons the league has ever seen, with only 13 points separating Shield winners San Diego Wave from 12th place Chicago Red Stars.
With the Championship final set to take place on Saturday, 11 November, the season finale will be one for the history books, with either Gotham FC or OL Reign lifting the trophy for the very first time.
Nike teased the submission on none other than DeuxMoi’s Instagram – self-proclaimed curators of pop culture and the go-to digital platform for celebrity news and entertainment leaks.
Whether or not the season will actually contend with the likes of ‘Succession’ and ‘The Crown’, it’s now in the hands of the film and television powers that be. There’s however no doubt that this has been the biggest NWSL season to date.
Record-shattering attendance and viewership, tough competition week in and week out, and a Top 6 that wasn’t decided until the final day of the season – that’s what football is all about. And if things don’t work out with the Golden Globes, they can always add some music to Lynn Williams and Trinity Rodman’s choreography for a shot at a Grammy next year.
