So too does Zapwater, as the Chicago Red Stars, Chicago’s local team in Women's Professional Soccer (WPS), tapped our agency this Spring to build exposure for the team and all of its talented players and player personalities. This year marks the second season of the Red Stars, along with seven other teams across the United States featuring the best female soccer players from around the world -- Boston Breakers, FC Gold Pride (Bay Area), Saint Louis Athletica, Sky Blue FC (NJ/NY), Washington Freedom, Atlanta Beat and Philadelphia Independence.
