Gotham FC Home Opener. Game Preview.

Producer Gary Gibson


The reigning NWSL champions, NJ/NY Gotham FC, are set to electrify Red Bull Arena on Sunday, April 14th, as they host the undefeated Kansas City Current for their 2024 home opener!

Key Matchups:

  1. League’s Best Defense vs. League’s Best Offense: Gotham FC boasts the league’s best defense. Allowing just 0.5 goals per game. The backline should get a boost from returning anchor Maitane Lopez from injury. Can they contain the KC Current's high-scoring attack that has 9 different goal scorers across three games?

  2. Midfield Battleground: With Rose Lavelle potentially returning from injury, Gotham FC aims to dominate the midfield against the impressive duo of Lo'eau LaBonta and Vanessa Di Bernardo. Who will control the tempo of the game?

  3. Experience vs. Momentum: Gotham FC, the 2023 champions, are a seasoned team. But the undefeated KC Current are riding a wave of early-season success. Can the experience of Gotham FC outweigh the current momentum of the visitors?

  4. Injury Returns: Both teams are missing big players on the injury list. Both teams had 2 weeks to heal up. May we see Lynn Williams, Rose Lavelle, Sinead Farrely, and others return? 

3 Reasons for Fans to Celebrate:

  1. Ali Krieger Returns! Fan favorite and Gotham FC legend Ali Krieger will be back at Red Bull Arena signing autographs and soaking in the cheers from the crowd. Don't miss this chance to meet a champion! Minority owner Eli Manning will also be in attendance for this one.
