WNT Oct 5, 2012
With Games 4 & 5 of the U.S. Women's National Team Fan Tribute Tour presented by Panasonic on the horizon (vs. Germany on Oct. 20 in Chicago and Oct. 23 in East Hartford), Games 6 & 7 have now been confirmed as well.
The USA will take on the Republic of Ireland on Nov. 28 at JELD-WEN Field, the electric home of the Portland Timbers and then square off in a second leg on Dec. 1 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in suburban Phoenix.
If you live in the Northwest or Arizona, the U.S. WNT is coming to you.
Kickoff time in Portland is 7 p.m. PT while the match in Phoenix will begin at 7:30 p.m. MT.
More than 14,000 tickets have been sold for each of the Germany matches, which means the game on Oct. 20 at Toyota Park is nearing capacity at nearly 19,000-seat venue. The Germans are currently preparing for the 2013 European Women's Championships to be held next summer in Sweden.
Germany easily won Group 2 during qualifying, taking 28 points from 10 matches, out-pacing second place Spain by 8 points.
The USA-Germany clashes will of course pit the teams currently ranked in the top two spots in the FIFA Women's World rankings.
