The U.S. Women’s National Team will play at Allianz Field on Tuesday, October 26. The match will be broadcast starting at 6:30 p.m. CT for a pre-game show on FS1 and 7 p.m. CT on TUDN.
The USWNT will play two matches in September against Paraguay and two matches in October against Korea Republic to finish its 2021 domestic schedule. Both sets of matches will take place during their respective FIFA international match windows and will feature the players from the bronze-medal winning 2020 Olympic Team.
“It’s a privilege to be able to host the U.S. Women’s National team once again in front of our fans at Allianz Field,” said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright. “It’s wonderful that U.S. Soccer recognizes what an incredible venue we have for hosting our national teams for international competitions. What an incredible honor it will be to provide Carli Lloyd a memorable sendoff in front of such a passionate and adoring crowd in our home stadium. It’s yet another landmark event for our club and our community.”
Minnesota United and Allianz Field have previously hosted the USWNT. Fresh off their 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Championship, the USWNT played an international friendly as part of their 2019 Victory Tour on September 3, 2019 against Portugal, a 3-0 win in which Carli Lloyd scored a brace in front of a sold-out crowd.
“Over the past 17 years, I’ve played in stadiums all over the world and all over the United States, but it seems appropriate that my last game will come in the area where the U.S. Women’s National Team basically started with domestic games in the mid-1980s,” said USWNT legend Carli Lloyd. “Minnesota has really embraced their MLS team and fans deserve such a beautiful soccer stadium. I’m looking forward to playing my last game at Allianz Field and to experiencing the awesome fans there one more time.”
In the first matches after the end of the 2020 Olympics, the USA will take on Paraguay on Thursday, Sept. 16 at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio (6:30 p.m. CT on ESPN2, TUDN.tv and the TUDN App). The USA will then travel to the hometown of midfielder Rose Lavelle to complete the two-game set on Tuesday, Sept. 21 with the first-ever USWNT match at FC Cincinnati’s newly opened TQL Stadium (6:30 p.m. CT on FS1 & TUDN).
In October, the USA will come together in the home area of Vlatko Andonovski to take on Korea Republic on Thursday, Oct. 21, at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas (7 p.m. CT on ESPN2 and TUDN) and then will travel to Saint Paul, Minnesota to complete that two-game series at Allianz Field on Tuesday, Oct. 26 (6:30 p.m. CT pre-game on FS1 and 7 p.m. CT on TUDN).
The four games will be the final matches in a U.S. uniform for USWNT legend Carli Lloyd, who will play her farewell match on Oct. 26 in Minnesota. Lloyd is currently the second-most capped player in world soccer history with 312 games played for the USA and has scored 128 international goals, fourth in USWNT history. She needs two goals to tie Kristine Lilly for third all-time.
“The work never stops and every game we play has meaning,” said WNT Head Coach Vlatko Andonovski. “These games are important to welcome back our Olympic Team to play in front of our home fans, but they are also the first steps towards 2023 World Cup qualifying. We all know we have to be at the top of our game to win at the highest levels and the dedication of the entire group to that pursuit will never change.”
