San Diego Wave and USWNT star Alex Morgan speaks out on bombshell accusations that president Jill Ellis fostered an ‘abusive environment

San Diego Wave and USWNT superstar Alex Morgan has broken her silence on allegations leveled against club president and former national team coach Jill Ellis.

On Wednesday, Ellis was accused by a former videographer of the NWSL team of ‘fostering an environment where abusive behaviors among her subordinates are allowed to flourish’.

While the team have denied the unspecified allegations, the team’s captain Morgan has now taken to social media with a statement of her own.

 

‘I am disappointed to hear about the allegations made by multiple former Wave FC employees today,’ Morgan wrote on X.

‘As players, we have worked hard to build a team that is surrounded by an inclusive, positive and safe environment.

But it’s important to me that we are creating that environment for both players AND staff throughout the entire organization. Equity in the workplace is something I have and will continue to advocate for.

‘I want to be proud of what we are building at the Wave but it is clear that there is so much work to be done.’

The San Diego Wave called accusations made by a former employee on social media ‘inaccurate and defamatory’ in a statement on Wednesday.

Brittany Alvarado, who says she is a former video and creative manger for the team, called on the National Women’s Soccer League to remove team President Ellis, the former coach of the U.S. women’s national team.

She cited a poor work environment that was discriminatory that took a toll on her mental health

The Wave responded with a statement that said the team ‘has been made aware of a recent social media post by a former employee that contains inaccurate and defamatory statements about the club.’

The Wave went on to say they were looking into possible legal avenues available to address the matter.

‘Jill Ellis has no place in this game, and she has been excused for far too long,’ Alvarado wrote about the English-born executive, who won two World Cups with Team USA during her celebrated career on the sidelines.

Alvarado isn’t blaming Ellis for all she says she endured, but does believe that Ellis has been the driving force behind the team’s rampant turnover since inaugural 2021 season.

‘Since the team’s inception, over 30 employees have been fired or quit, with nearly 75% of them being women, underscoring the deep issues within the club,’ Alvarado claimed in her post on X. ‘Sadly, many of these employees are hesitant to speak publicly about their experiences, reflecting the widespread fear surrounding these issues.’
