New Orleans will play host to the United States women’s national team’s final match on its 10-game World Cup victory tour on Dec. 16, when the U.S. women will play China at the Superdome.

The three matches which will precede that Dec. 16 game will be announced at a later date, according to U.S. Soccer.

The U.S. women will play Brazil on Oct. 21 in Seattle and again on Oct. 25 in Orlando in the next two matches on the victory tour. After defeating Haiti twice last month in two games which were supposed to be against Australia before the Matildas went on strike, the U.S. women are now riding a 100-game home unbeaten streak dating back to Nov. 6, 2004.

The Dec. 16 match will be broadcast live on FS1 at 8 p.m. ET.
