NEW YORK (July 24, 2023) – The National Women’s Soccer League, in partnership with Nationwide, announced today details around the 2023 Nationwide Community Impact Program, a season-long, civically-focused initiative promoting community partners and advancing local service projects chosen and led by each NWSL team. At the conclusion of the 2023 season, the program will culminate with the Nationwide Community Impact Award, where one club and its partner will be recognized for their exemplary commitment off the field.
The program, which officially kicked off this month, will feature appreciation games recognizing each club’s community partner during a home match.
At the end of the season, one team-community partnership will be selected as the winner of the Nationwide Community Impact Award. Their efforts will be honored during the 2023 NWSL Championship weekend in November, with the winning community partner receiving a $25,000 donation from Nationwide to further their organization’s efforts. In addition, each participating community partner will receive a $5,000 grant.
A full list of the 2023 player ambassadors, community partners and team appreciation nights can be found here.
