U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team in Orlando Update

Filed under: Orlando Sport,US Soccer |

The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team will finish its 2013 game schedule with a match against Brazil on Sunday 10th November at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando. The match is set to kick off at 3.30pm Eastern Time and will also be broadcast on NBC.

Tickets for the game will go on sale to the public on Thursday 17 October at 10am Eastern Time through ussoccer.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers through Central Florida. Importantly, the only day that tickets can be obtained at the Florida Citrus Bowl will be on game day.

The meeting of the world’s top ranked U.S. Team against fourth ranked Brazil marks the first match between the countries in the United States since 2008. That was the game when the USA pulled out a 1-0 victory in San Diego and in which leading goalscorer Abby Wambach broke her leg. Since then the teams have played each other three times; in Beijing, China, at the 2008 Olympic gold medal game; in Dresden, Germany, during the historic 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinal; and in Chiba, Japan, during an international tournament in April 2012.

“Over the last few years, there’s been an intense rivalry between the two countries and a series of games that have been very tightly contested, highly competitive and of course, extremely dramatic,” said U.S. Head Coach Tom Sermanni (pictured above right). “It will be a fantastic game to finish the year off.”

In support of the match, U.S. Soccer is working closely with Orlando City Soccer Club, the reigning USL PRO champion, who have played their matches at the Citrus Bowl for the past three seasons.

“Orlando City Soccer Club is thrilled to help bring the U.S. Women’s national Team to Orlando,” said Orlando City President Phil Rawlins (pictured above left). “Since our organisation launched in 2011, our goal has been to grow the sport of soccer in Central Florida. Successfully hosting this match will be yet another step forward in Orlando City’s goal of being announced this year as the next Major League Soccer (MLS) Expansion Club.”

The match will be the USA’s first visit to Orlando and the Citrus Bowl since 22 May 1999, when the Americans also played Brazil. That game ended in a 3-0 U.S. victory with Mia Hamm scoring her 108th career goal to break the international scoring record. The U.S. Women has an historic bond with Orlando as they staged their Residency Training Camps here for both the 1995 and 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup tournaments, as well as the 1996 Olympics. The USA also played its first two Olympic matches at the Citrus Bowl in 1996, a 3-0 defeat of Denmark and a 2-1 victory over Sweden. The USA would then go onto win the gold medal in the first Olympics in which women’s soccer was contested.

The WNT also played at the Citrus Bowl on 2nd August 1998, a 4-0 victory against Canada in what was the first match of a doubleheader with the third Major League Soccer All Star Game.

The USA has an all time record of 24-2-3 against Brazil overall.

So, now’s your chance to get to see some of the best women’s players of all time. make sure you get your tickets to support Abby Wambach, Shannon Boxx, Carli Lloyd,  Heather O’Reilly, Alex Morgan,  Christie Rampone, Hope Solo and all the U.S. Women’s team.
