U.S. WNT to Hold Public Training Session on Nov. 9 at Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando
U.S. Soccer Fans Are Encouraged to Attend Public Training Session at 11 a.m. ET as U.S. WNT Prepares to Face Brazil
CHICAGO (Oct. 30, 2013) – All U.S. Soccer fans are invited to attend the U.S. Women’s National Team’s public training session on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 11 a.m. ET at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
Admission is free and open to the public. U.S. Soccer Supporters Club members will receive premium seating at the public training session. If fans wish to take part in this exclusive priority, they can join the U.S. Soccer Supporters Club through ussoccer.com or at the stadium on the day of the training session.
At the session, fans will get a first-hand look at how the U.S. Women’s National Team prepares for a match a little more than 24 hours before kickoff.
Fans attending the public training session at the Citrus Bowl are asked to park in Lots 1, 6, 7 and A free of charge. Fans may enter the stadium through Gate B, which will open at 10:30 a.m. ET.
The U.S. will face Brazil in an international friendly match on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 3:30 p.m. ET. Fans can watch the match live on NBC, as well as follow the action on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and via Twitter @ussoccer_wnt.
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.
Tickets are on sale 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.) [Note: Tickets are not sold at the Florida Citrus Bowl except on the day of the event.]
The match will be the USA’s first visit to Orlando and the Florida 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 the international scoring record.
