Sky Blue FC's big names will be familiar ones to fans at Yurcak Field in Piscataway in 2015. The New Jersey-based team kept all four allocated players from last year as the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) named the 42 allocated players when the league picks up in mid-April.

The biggest name will be local favorite and United States Women's National Team captain Christie Rampone. The central defender is back for another year as she continues to show she many never retire - at least not soon.

USWNT teammate Kelley O'Hara is also back for another season. O'Hara was moved up from her defender's spot on the national team to forward and she scored seven goals - tied for the team lead.

Mexican international Monica Ocampo and Canada's Jonelle Filigno also return to the Sky Blue roster.

All will miss the star of the season as the build-up to this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 begins in earnest but are expected to play in a handful games before returning to their respective national teams. The league will take a break in mid-June for group play.
