Sky Blue FC Acquires Two Draft Picks in Trade with Houston Dash
Morristown, N.J. (Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015) – Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) completed a trade with the Houston Dash today, receiving a fourth round pick (No. 36 overall) in the 2016 NWSL College Draft and natural third round pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft from the Dash. In exchange for the two draft selections, Houston has acquired the rights to forward Chioma Ubogagu.

By adding a second fourth round pick, Sky Blue FC will now have five overall selections in the 2016 NWSL College Draft, which will take place at the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Convention in Baltimore on Friday, Jan. 15th.
