Pittsburgh Passion kicks off its 11th season of action in the Woman’s Football Alliance when The Passion host Washington D.C. at 7 p.m. April 6 at the Highmark Stadium in Station Square.

With 62 teams, the WFA is the largest and fastest growing women’s tackle football league in America. It is a full-contact football league.

The home opener’s theme is “Honoring Those Who Serve.” As a courtesy, all military, police, firefighters and veterans who wish to attend the game will be recognized at halftime and will have the opportunity to meet the players after the game.

One of the Passion’s standouts is Rachel Wojdowski. The Bethel Park High School graduate is in her third season. The daughter of Jack and Sue Wojdowski is a wide receiver for the Passion. By day, she is the director of basketball operations for the Duquesne University women’s basketball team.

After traveling to New York for a game April 20, the Passion return home to host the Columbus Comets on April 27.
