The venue for the USA's first match against Italy is home to Calcio Padova of the Italian "Serie B." The club is currently in fourth place and looking for a return to the top flight for the first time since 1996 when former U.S. international Alexi Lalas played two seasons here. The stadium, which also features a track, seats about 18,000 for soccer. The U.S. Women's National Team has not played a match in Italy since 2001.
