The following is excerpted from CanadaKicks:

The Women's United Soccer Association recently completed their first draft but may face the new league may face their biggest test before they ever kick a ball.

UEFA has decided to press ahead with the creation of a women’s European club soccer competition, to be launched by next season and aimed directly at WUSA.

At a recent meeting of its women’s soccer committee, asked for interested national associations to register for the competition, which is open to the league champions, league runners-up and cup winners from domestic competitions. The deadline for registrations is next June.

A total of 23 member associations have already registered. The competition will take a mini-league format in the initial phases, similar to the Champions League with a final to be staged in May 2002.

The US league WUSA, which is naming players for its eight teams ahead of a scheduled start of April this year, has strong financial and commercial backing and has attracted high-profile female soccer players.

Turner Sports and CNN/Sports Illustrated are thought to have paid WUSA $12 million over four seasons for the television rights to the competition.
