Update: Tickets for the USWNT vs. Japan on June 2nd at Dick's Sporting Goods Park are currently sold out.
In conjunction with U.S. Soccer, the Colorado Rapids announced today that Dick’s Sporting Goods Park will host an international friendly between the United States Women’s National Team and Japan on Thursday, June 2 at 7:00 p.m. MT.
"We are honored to entertain the USWNT here at Dick’s Sporting's Good Park,” said Tim Hinchey, President of Colorado Rapids. “They thrilled the entire nation with their victory at the World Cup last year and hosting a repeat of the final makes us truly proud. We are looking forward to a great game."
The match will be the first time the United States Women’s National Team will face off against Japan since their 5-2 victory at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup last summer. These two nations have met three times in major international finals – the 2011 and 2015 FIFA WWC Finals and the 2012 London Olympics gold medal game. The USA and Japan split the World Cup finals, while the USA won the gold medal match in 2012.
This will be the USA’s fourth visit to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and fifth to Denver. The WNT has won all the previous games, playing in Commerce City in 2008 (1-0 vs. Brazil), 2012 (6-2 vs. Australia) and 2014 (2-0 vs. China PR). The USA defeated Brazil 6-0 at Mile High Stadium back in 1999 following the Women’s World Cup triumph on home soil.
Dick’s Sporting Goods Park has also hosted several prominent club and international games, including last year’s CONCACAF Olympic qualifiers, the 2007 and 2015 MLS All-Star games, as well as a number of USMNT and USWNT World Cup qualifiers and friendlies.
