WIS AND BROOKLYN CITY F.C
At the start of 2021, WIS supported BCFC in the launch of the Women’s Super League – Brooklyn, which aims to provide a consistent competitive outlet for women in NYC.
At the 2021 WIS Career Fair representatives from Brooklyn F.C. supported the WIS community by leading table discussions for aspiring professionals looking for leadership advice in coaching, and/or youth club management.
