FAU Stadium to host soccer match

It is being reported that the Women's Team USA will host a soccer match between China at FAU in December on the 15th December. If the Oxley Center and the marketing department from the National team are smart, the stadium could be sold out for the match.

As well as FAU's release…

The 2012 Olympic gold medal-winning U.S. Women’s National Team will play China on Dec. 15 at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Fla., in the 10th and final match of the Fan Tribute Tour Presented by Panasonic. The kickoff time and ticket information will be released shortly.

The U.S. Women will be making their first visit to this new venue, home of the Florida Atlantic University Owls football team and opened in October 2011. The match will also be the first for the U.S. WNT in Palm Beach County and the first in South Florida in nearly 13 years. The USA’s last appearance in the region came in February 2000 when the Americans faced Norway in Fort Lauderdale.

The USA has played China once so far in 2012, a 4-1 victory on May 27 in front of a sell-out crowd at PPL Park in Chester, Pa., as Alex Morgan scored twice , Abby Wambach scored once and China knocked in an own goal. The Dec. 15 match in Florida will be the USA’s final match of 2012 and the 49th all-time meeting between the USA and China.

The USA has averaged more than 18,000 fans per game while going 3-0-2 so far on the Fan Tribute Tour presented by Panasonic, defeating Costa Rica 8-0, beating Australia by 2-1 and 6-2 scores and drawing Germany twice, 1-1 and 2-2. The USA returns to action for a pair of matches against Ireland on Nov. 28 at JELD-WEN Field in Portland, Oregon, and Dec. 1 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The China matches will be the first time new U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni will watch the team play in person since taking the job. He will not coach the matches but will attend in an observatory role as U.S. Soccer Director of Women’s Development Jill Ellis will lead the team in the final five matches of the tour.

The U.S. won its third straight gold medal (and fourth gold medal overall) at the 2012 London Olympics. The USA went undefeated at 6-0-0 for the first time at an Olympic tournament, which included a thrilling come-from-behind overtime victory in the semifinal against Canada on Aug. 6 and Carli Lloyd’s two-goal performance to lead the U.S. to a 2-1 win against 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup champion Japan in the gold medal match on Aug. 9.

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Does anyone know if we are going to get a request if we want to purchase our season ticket seats before the tickets go on sale to the public like we did for the Lacrosse game?

GO OWLS!
