San Jose loses its champion pro sports team

As reported by Center Line Soccer, a mere two months after winning the championship of the Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) league, San Jose’s FC Gold Pride will cease operations for financial reasons. The team’s private owners had sought a buyer for the club, but were unable to find anyone willing to support likely million-dollar-per-year losses. The team apparently lost about $5 million in the two years it played. The WPS is expected to announce the league will continue in the 2011 season, despite the loss of its top team.

Keep an eye on Center Line Soccer for further details about the fate of the team and its players.
