The 2013 Allocation distribution was one of the starting steps to the NWSL kicking off. It set the tone for the league and who would be playing where within it. The US WNT, Canadian WNT, and Mexican WNT each distributed players among the eight teams in the league, three for the US and two each from the Canadian and Mexican teams.

Here is a quick snapshot of who was allocated where, who has stayed with their first club, who’s moved on to another, and who is just out of the league altogether.
