USWNT Faces England At Historic Wembley Stadium

+

The U.S. Women’s National Team kicks off its highly anticipated two-game tour of Europe during this international window when it takes on England on Friday, Oct. 7 at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London. The match will kick off at 3 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. local on FOX with pre-game broadcast coverage beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET. A sellout crowd of nearly 90,000 fans is expected to be in attendance to watch the USA, reigning World Cup Champions and the top-ranked team in the world, take on recently crowned European Champions and fourth-ranked England, which would make it the highest-attended friendly in USWNT history and the largest crowd for any USA match since the iconic 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final at the Rose Bowl. With less than ten months to go until the start of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, England is the highest-ranked opponent the USA has faced this year and marks the first of four matches against Top-10 foes to close out the year, with matches against Spain (Oct. 11) and Germany (Nov. 10 and 13) ahead for the red, white and blue
