- "NWSL's two-time defending champion FC Kansas City acquired U.S. women's national team forward Sydney Leroux as part of a three-team deal on Wednesday. Leroux, who will now play in the same city as her husband, Sporting Kansas City's Dom Dwyer, moves to FCKC along with Tiffany McCarty. The Western New York Flash, which dealt Leroux, acquire forward Jessica McDonald, a 2016 and 2017 international roster slot and a 2017 second-round draft pick. FCKC had acquired McDonald and McCarty from the Houston Dash in a separate trade for a first-round draft pick in Thursday's 2016 draft and an international roster spot."

- "CONCACAF found no clear or convincing evidence of match fixing or an intentional effort to affect the results of the Gold Cup 2015 matches. Each of the decisions during the quarterfinals and semifinals of the Gold Cup 2015 could be attributed to simple mistakes, errors in positioning, and/or lack of concentration."
