SEATTLE — OL Reign made it official that they have acquired the rights to forward Tobin Heath from Racing Louisville.
As was reported earlier in the week, the Reign signed Heath for the rest of the National Women’s Soccer League season, with an option for 2023. She will join the team next week.
In exchange, Louisville received second- and fourth-round picks in next year’s NWSL draft and $50,000 in allocation money.
“We’re all eager to win a title, and I’m hopeful I can help OL Reign achieve that goal,” Heath said.
