SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Women’s Professional Soccer league is folding after three seasons.

Its board of governors announced Friday it had agreed to suspend all operations permanently. The league had canceled the 2012 season in January, at the time hoping to return next year.

The league’s predecessor, WUSA, also lasted only three seasons.

The 2012 season was scrapped amid a legal dispute with an ousted owner. League officials had clashed with Dan Borislow of the South Florida franchise all last season. The WPS says it’s reached a confidential out-of-court settlement with Borislow, who had sued the league.
