Match Preview: Gotham FC Looks to Bounce Back against Seattle Reign

HARRISON, NJ – NJ/NY Gotham FC will host the Seattle Reign FC on Sunday, June 30 at Red Bull Arena (1 p.m. ET, ESPN2). Sunday will be the first time the two sides face each other since the 2023 NWSL Championship game.

Despite the loss, the club still sits fourth in the table with 27 points (8-3-3) and is still tied for the least number of goals conceded in the league (11). Sunday will be Gotham FC’s final home regular-season match before the Olympic break.

However, Racing scored at the death to split points between the two teams. The Reign currently sit 13th in the standings with nine points (2-9-3).
