“It’s always fun to play in cities that we haven’t been to that much and with the opening of a new stadium for Minnesota United. It’s awesome that we’ll get to play in St. Paul this fall in a world class facility that is another sign of the growth of soccer in the USA.” said USWNT midfielder Rose Lavelle. “I’m all in favor of any time we can go to Big 10 country and we’re really looking forward to celebrating the World Cup title with all of the fans in the Midwest.”
This will be the second time the US Women’s National Team has played a match in Minnesota, the last time coming in October of 2016 when they defeated Switzerland 5-1 at US Bank Stadium.
