News Release, Washington Spirit
CHICAGO (Sept. 30, 2019) – Washington Spirit midfielder Andi Sullivan has been added to the U.S. Women’s National Team roster for the two upcoming matches against the Korea Republic on the 2019 Victory Tour.
Sullivan has had an excellent season with the Spirit, starting all 22 of the Spirit’s matches this season and playing the maximum amount of minutes. Sullivan wore the captain’s armband for the first time this year as she was named Team Captain during preseason camp.

The Spirit now have three players with the USWNT as Sullivan joins Spirit teammates Rose Lavelle and Mallory Pugh on the national team roster.
