The USL W-League is a national women's soccer league. It is in the United States and Canada. It is alongside the Women's Premier Soccer League and below Women's Professional Soccer.

The W-League is seen as North America’s main way for women to develop in soccer.[1] The W-League is also an open league. This gives college players the chance to play alongside established international players. The league is administered by the United Soccer Leagues system. The USL also oversees the men's USL Pro and USL Premier Development League.
