Sky Blue FC Tickets
Representing the New York/New Jersey area, Sky Blue FC was one of the early pioneers of women's soccer. Originally known as Jersey Sky Blue, the club was a member of the USL W-League — a sort of bridge between the amateur and professional levels. In 2009, the organization split between a W-League team, the Hudson Valley Quickstrike Lady Blues, and a fully professional club, the Sky Blue FC of the Women’s Professional Soccer. Sky Blue FC made history with a victory over Los Angeles 1-0 to capture the inaugural WPS championship. Following the dissolution of the WPS in 2012, Sky Blue found a new home in the recently established National Women’s Soccer League. During the league’s inaugural season, Sky Blue qualified for the postseason with a fourth-place finish and a 10-6-6 record. However, the club lost 2-0 to the Western New York Flash in the semifinals match. StubHub is a leading source for Sky Blue FC tickets to all home and away games.
