    Does anybody here know where I can find either season-by-season statistics from the WUSA or game results (ideally with lineups and goalscorers)?

    I'm building an American soccer statistics reference website, and I can't find anywhere online that has anything near a complete list.

    Thanks.

    Your best bet is to try and find someone with the overall WUSA and individual team media guides. I don't remember how detailed match reports go, but they had some fairly good depth to them.

    I don't think they ever released any final (post 2003 season) stats, but I could be wrong.

    Yeah, I've got all three of the Washington Freedom media guides, but that's only going to cover their 2001 and 2001 matches.

    That's why I'm here. :)

    Seriously, though, is there a better place than bigsoccer that I might find somebody? I've just tweeted Tony DiCicco - any other front office people who might be of help?

    Even if they didn't release 2003 stats, if I can get complete game result data, I can compile the stats myself.

    Does the media guide just cover Freedom results, or all WUSA?

    The Freedom media guide for year X has box scores for all the Freedom matches for year X-1, but only the Freedom matches. As our distinguished moderator notes, you'd need a media guide from each team for the remaining information, and even then none of them are going to have the 2003 box scores.

    You're likely going to have to piece things together from multiple sources.

    Do you use twitter? If so, you might want to try contacting some media folks who were involved then that might have some info. Marcia McDermott is @mmcd21 The former FCGP GM, Ilisa Kessler worked for the CyberRays @ikessler Beau Dure (@duresport) might have some old media guides from back in the day.

    You can also check with Andy Crossley, former Breakers GM. He just posted a WUSA media guide on ebay recently that covers the league as a whole. It's from 2003 so it wouldn't have any info for the last season, but should cover all the info you need from the first two.

    This sounds like a great start, thanks a lot.

    Is this the media guide in question?

    Yeah, that's the one. I just ordered one myself the other day; it looks like a great resource.

    I've bought one of the two available. I can let you know what it contains once I get it.

    I pulled the Philadelphia Charge stats off their website before it went down but I'm not sure where they are. I'll look for them.
