Houston Dash re-sign Canadian internationals Allysha Chapman and Nichelle Prince

Fresh off being named to the NWSL’s 2020 allocated player list, the pair of Canadians return to Houston.

HOUSTON – The Houston Dash roster has gone through several major changes during their offseason, but two familiar faces that will be coming back in the 2020 season are Canadian internationals Allysha Chapman and Nichelle Prince. Both players have re-signed with the Dash, the club announced Friday.

The update comes on the heels of both Chapman and Prince being announced Thursday as NWSL allocated players for 2020 through the Canada’s soccer federation.

Chapman has had two stints with the Dash, the first time she played for Houston it was from 2015-16 and then rejoined in 2018. Both times she has been a key member of the defense, starting in 41 of 43 appearances, and she has recorded one assist.

The 31-year-old defender has represented Canada in two FIFA Women’s World Cups with an active role in 2015 and again in 2019.

“I’m really excited to be back with the Dash this year,” Chapman said in a statement. “We’ve got a lot of new, exciting faces along with a strong core of returners. I’m ready for the opportunity to show Houston this group has what it takes.”

Prince has earned 33 starts in 47 appearances for the Dash, tallying five goals and three assists with the club since joining the squad in 2017.

The forward was also part of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 representing Canada and was responsible for giving her team the lead over New Zealand with her first World Cup goal helping Canada qualify for the knockout round.

“I’m super excited to start my fourth season with the Dash,” Prince said in a statement. “There have been a lot of changes and developments over the years that have made this club one of the best places to play. I’m honored to be a part of it another year and to get to work towards a playoff spot with this team.”

The Dash’s home opener will be against defending NWSL Champion North Carolina Courage on Saturday, April 25 at BBVA Compass Stadium.
