The U.S. Women’s National Team will take on Australian Women’s National Team at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in April as they prepare for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The event will be held on Thursday, April 4th at 7:00 p.m. MT.
The team is playing 10 matches between January and May as part of their Countdown to the Cup tour ahead of the world cup this summer in France. Two of the matches are in Europe (including a match against France in January) and eight will be here in the United States.
USWNT head coach Jill Ellis said that “this schedule checks a lot of important boxes in our preparation for the World Cup. We’ll get to experience a variety of teams in regard to their strengths and styles of play and almost all of the countries will be in their World Cup preparation as well. We are playing tough games in Europe, which is vitally important, and also get to play quality opponents in front of our home fans at venues all across the USA. It will go fast, but these games will be a major factor in pushing us to be at our peak once we arrive in France next summer.”
The USWNT hasn’t lost a game since July 27, 2017, and it was against Australia in Seattle. More recently, the US side tied Australia on 1-1 July 29, 2018. That being said, the USWNT is undefeated in Commerce City and this will be the second meeting of the two teams in Colorado.
