The USWNT will be honored Wednesday with a ticker-tape parade in New York City to recognize the team for winning its fourth Women's World Cup Sunday.

Thanks to goals from Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle, the USWNT took down the Netherlands 2-0 in the final, repeating as champions and becoming the first to do so since Germany in 2003 and 2007.

In the immediate aftermath of the win, as stars from all walks of life congratulated the squad and a new Nike ad gave people chills, New York mayor Bill de Blasio announced that a parade will take place at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

It will mark the second trip through the Canyon of Heroes for the U.S. women, who also did so after winning the 2015 Women's World Cup as well. Of the 23 players who will get the honor this week, 12 of them were part of the last parade.
