CHICAGO (Oct. 21, 2013) - More than 10,000 tickets have been sold for the U.S. Women’s National Team’s game against Brazil at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Nov. 10. The U.S. WNT has now sold more than 10,000 tickets to every home game in 2013.
Tickets for the game – the final match of the year for the U.S. Women – have been sold to fans from 32 states, one U.S. territory (Puerto Rico) and four foreign countries (Canada, the Cayman Islands, Great Britain and the Netherland Antilles). The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on NBC. Fans can also follow along on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and on Twitter @ussoccer_wnt.
Tickets are available through ussoccer.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout Central Florida (including many Walmart locations), as well as the Amway Center ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.). Tickets are not sold at the Florida Citrus Bowl except on the day of the event.
Groups of 20 or more can obtain an order form at ussoccer.com or call 312-528-1290. Ultimate Fan Tickets (special VIP packages that include a premium ticket, a custom-made official U.S. National Team jersey with name and number, VIP access to the field before and after the game, and other unique benefits) are also available exclusively through ussoccer.com.
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, when the USA pulled out a 1-0 victory in San Diego. The teams have played three times since: 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.
The match will be the USA’s first visit to Orlando and the Citrus Bowl since May 22, 1999, when the Americans also played Brazil. That 3-0 U.S. victory featured Mia Hamm scoring her 108th-career goal to break what was at that time the international scoring record.
