Fresh off their Women’s World Cup win, the US Women’s National Team has announced a five-stop victory lap.
They’ll play four more matches on August 29, September 3, October 3 and October 6. Locations and opponents will be announced at a later date.
The national team has missed at least two months of the National Women’s Soccer League season. So, it’s unclear which players will return for the victory tour. The league’s regular season ends in mid-October.
But before they can resume play with their club teams, the women will be honored with a ticker tape parade through Manhattan. New York mayor Bill de Blasio announced the city would honor their historic win with a morning parade Wednesday (though the constant celebration has made recent morning appearances an all-sunglasses affair).
There’s still no word from the White House whether Trump will extend an official invitation to the team since his Twitter feud with star forward Megan Rapinoe, who famously said she wasn’t “f****ng going to the White House” if the team won.
