The United States women’s national team will play Australia twice at home in September as part of the team’s 10-game victory tour for its 2015 Women’s World Cup triumph.
Ford Field in Detroit will play host to the first match, on Sept. 17 (7 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1), and Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., will host the two teams on Sept. 20 (2:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2).
Australia and the U.S. played last month in the group stage of the World Cup, with the U.S. prevailing, 3-1. Australia was the United States’ opponent the last time the Americans played at Legion Field, a 5-4 victory in 2008. Australia has never beaten the United States, going 0-23-2 all-time.

The U.S. has played three times at Legion Field and twice at Ford Field, winning all five games.
