Sep 18, 2017

Thanks to FC Cincinnati, our city has turned into a soccer town. The club continues to draw thousands of fans to its matches.

Now soccer fans have a chance to see the U.S. Women's National Team (WNT) in action. The WNT takes on New Zealand tomorrow night at Nippert Stadium. U.S. Women's Team midfielder Rose Lavelle from Cincinnati is on the roster for the match.

This will be the first visit here for the U.S. Women since 2008. And it will be the first time they play at Nippert Stadium, current home to FC Cincinnati.
