VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The United States women’s national team will play 10 matches for a victory tour if the team wins the 2015 Women’s World Cup.
The team will play at least six games this calendar year following the World Cup, but it is unlikely that it would play 10 matches is Japan wins the final. The U.S. plays Japan in Sunday’s final, a rematch of the 2011 Women’s World Cup final.
U.S. Soccer has already announced a pair of August friendly matches against Costa Rica, on August 16 in Pittsburgh, Penn., and August 19 in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The U.S. will reportedly play Australia twice in September. A source also confirmed that the United States will play two friendly matches in October. The FIFA international calendar designates Sept. 16-22 and Oct. 21-27 as official windows for international matches.
Over 26,000 tickets have been sold for the August 16 game at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. The August 19 match in Chattanooga is sold out, with over 20,000 fans.
