Washington Spirit vs. Orlando Pride 2021: Time, TV schedule and how to watch NWSL online

Two teams under interim leadership meet today in the District as the Washington Spirit host the Orlando Pride. The Spirit have played the Pride twice in the regular season, taking a second half lead both times only to walk off with a 1-1 draw. Both teams will look different today, with Washington having fired coach Richie Burke amid allegations of abusive language and Orlando — following Marc Skinner accepting the Manchester United job —unbeaten (1W-2D-0L) under interim head coach Becky Burleigh.

It’s a vital moment for both teams. A win for the Spirit would see them jump over Orlando and several other teams into a tie for 3rd place, but another loss or draw would extend a recent winless run to four games.
