U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team To Face Korea Republic At Mercedes-Benz Superdome
NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team will face the Korea Republic in two friendly matches – the first on Oct. 19, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, at 7:00 p.m., that will be broadcast on FS1, and then again on Oct. 22 at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina, at 2:00 p.m., and broadcast on ESPN.
The USA last faced Korea Republic on May 30, 2015, drawing 0-0 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, in what was the last match before the historic run to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup title.
“To play a highly technical and organized team like South Korea will give us more quality matches in 2017,” said U.S. head coach Jill Ellis. “They are consistently pushing the top teams in Asia and these games, right at the end of the NWSL season, will be a great window to get the team back together before our final FIFA dates in November.”
The match in Cary brings the USA to the home stadium of the North Carolina Courage, which currently sits in first place in the National Women’s Soccer League and features four players who have earned WNT caps in 2017.
Tickets can also be purchased for the game in New Orleans at the Smoothie King Center Box Office (open Monday – Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., and at the Superdome ticket office only on the day of the event.
