The NWPLi began play as the Western Indoor Soccer League Women in 2020 but only played two games before the global pandemic shut down the season. The league transitioned to being operated by the NWPL in late 2021 and welcomed the Force and Artesians from the original four WISL women’s teams. Snohomish County took over for the Snohomish Skyhawks and the Tacoma Galaxy will replace Tacoma Narrows at the Tacoma Soccer Center. The league welcomed Bellingham to the fold with the Whatcom Waves.
