Additional Notes:

  • The USA has a long history in Washington, D.C. at the now-condemned RFK Stadium but a short one at Audi Field, home of the Washington Spirit in the NWSL and D.C. United in MLS. The USA’s first and thus far only appearance there was in September of 2022, a 2-1 win over Nigeria. The USWNT played 10 matches at the venerable RFK Stadium from 1995-2017.
  • The USWNT has faced Costa Rica 17 times, all wins, with the last meeting coming at the 2022 Concacaf W Championship, a 3-0 win in the quarterfinal round with goals coming from Emily Sonnett, Mallory Swanson and Ashley Sanchez.
  • Once the final whistle blows against Costa Rica in Washington, D.C., the USA will have nine days until its Olympic opener against Zambia in Nice.
