The New Zealand Herald News is reporting that the Football Ferns are set to play two matches with the U.S. Women’s National Team in mid-September. The report states that the matches would be in Kansas City and Portland and that New Zealand would attempt to then travel north to take on Canada.
U.S. Soccer officials have stated that the U.S. women are looking to play two mid-September friendly matches but could not elaborate.
If those cities are correctly identified by the report out of New Zealand, it would presumably be the USWNT’s first matches at the brand new Livestrong Park in Kansas City and the newly renovated JELD-WEN Field in Portland.
The U.S is 7-1-0 all-time against New Zealand with 34 goals for and two goals against. The U.S. is 2-0-2 all-time in Kansas City and has averaged 24,087 fans, although all four of those matches took place at Arrowhead Stadium.
Portland has been just as good to the U.S., which is 8-1-0. The American women are 5-1-0 at PGE Park, which is what JELD-WEN Park was called before it was renovated.
