CHICAGO (Sept. 5, 2012) – Fewer than 1,000 tickets remain available for the U.S. Women’s National Team’s international friendly match on Sept. 19 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

The free training session allows access to general admission seating so fans can catch a glimpse of their favorite players and watch the WNT prepare for a match up close.
