The Women’s Professional Soccer league has folded after three seasons.

“We sincerely regret having to take this course of action,” said T. Fitz Johnson, Atlanta Beat owner and chairman of the WPS.

The league had canceled the 2012 season in January, at the time hoping to return next year. But the remaining five owners announced in a statement Friday that all operations were suspended permanently.

“We are proud of what WPS has accomplished, having attracted the highest quality players in the world to play in the best women’s league, as well as the progress women’s soccer has enjoyed over the past three years,” Thomas Hofstetter, CEO and president of Sky Blue FC, said.
