It seems the worst part is over. As Beau tweeted this evening, U.S. Soccer has conditionally sanctioned WPS as a Division One league next season.

Beau also provided the official word from U.S. Soccer:

“After a positive discussion, the U.S. Soccer Board of Directors approved a plan to sanction WPS as a Division 1 professional league in 2012, subject to certain conditions. Once the Board receives confirmation from WPS that all five teams agree to those conditions, U.S. Soccer will issue a formal announcement.”


Now we must wait on the A.) the details regarding the conditions and B.) the formal announcement. But at least the 2012 season appears more likely to happen that it did, say, this time two weeks ago.
