USWNT victory tour finale set for Dec. 16 vs. China in New Orleans
The last match of the U.S. Women’s National Team’s FIFA World Cup victory tour will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans with a friendly against China on Dec. 16.
The match is set to kick off at 8 p.m. ET, and will be broadcasted nationally on Fox Sports 1.
The United States defeated China 1–0 in the quarterfinal of this summer's World Cup with a goal from Carli Lloyd. The United States holds a 33-8-13 all-time record against China.
The USWNT plans on playing four exhibition games in December. The coming trip marks the team’s first return to New Orleans since 2003, when the team played at Tad Gormley Stadium.
The Superdome joins Heinz Field (Pittsburgh), Finley Stadium (Chattanooga, Tenn.), Ford Field (Detroit), Legion Field (Birmingham, Ala.), CenturyLink Field (Seattle) and the Citrus Bowl (Orlando) as stops on the victory tour. The United States has won the first four matches played. The next game will be played against Brazil in Seattle on Oct. 21.
