San Diego Wave FC kicked off their 2023 NWSL Draft a little early on Thursday, completing a trade a few hours before the event began with Gotham FC. In the deal, San Diego got the No. 13 overall (1st pick in 2nd round) from Gotham, in exchange for $100,000 in allocation money.

The deal gives Wave FC a third selection, and their highest of the bunch, for Thursday’s draft, and it seems likely they will either target a particular player with it or package it for a future trade. In addition to the No. 13 pick, San Diego also have the No. 33 and No. 45 selections for the draft, which is taking place in Philadelphia this year.

We’ll keep you posted on draft night details for Wave FC as they drop. Hope you are ready for the 2023 season!
