U.S. Women to hold public training session at FC Dallas Stadium
The U.S. Women will face New Zealand on Saturday, Feb. 11, at FC Dallas Stadium in what will be the first Women’s match following their successful Olympic Qualifying campaign in Vancouver, Canada, in which they scored 38 goals en route to a first-place finish. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. CT.
The game marks the first time the WNT will face New Zealand since the 4-0 win in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. It is also the first time the U.S. Women return to Texas since May 2007. The U.S. is unbeaten in Texas and has only lost once to New Zealand in eight meetings, their first matchup in 1987.
More than 16,000 tickets have already been sold for the match, and tickets are still available through ussoccer.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (including Walmart and Fiesta stores).
U.S. Soccer will send out additional information about the session, stadium access points, parking, etc., via email 24 hours prior to the event to those who RSVP. All training times and locations are subject to change.
