USWNT to hold open training session ahead of Wednesday's friendly at BBVA Compass Stadium

By Jordan Fewox

On Wednesday, the U.S. women’s national team will continue their gold-medal celebration victory tour with a match against China at BBVA Compass Stadium. This will be the penultimate match of the Fan Tribute Tour, as the USWNT celebrates its gold medal from the 2012 London Olympics. The match will kick off at 7:30 p.m. CT and tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

Wednesday's match will be the second of three for the USWNT against China. The USWNT defeated China 2-0 Friday night in front of 17,371 fans at Ford Field in Detroit.

The USWNT is currently 6-0-2 on its victory tour. 2012 U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year Alex Morgan has scored eights goals on the tour, while the team's all-time leading scorer Abby Wambach has added five. The women have outscored their opponents 28-6 in the past eight matches.

The USWNT have attracted more than 18,000 fans per match during their Fan Tribute Tour and Wednesday's match is expected to sell out.

For fans who want to get an early look at the squad, there will be an open training session on Tuesday at BBVA Compass Stadium at 5 p.m. Fans may enter through the Statoil gate only (northeast side of stadium) beginning at 4:30 p.m. There will be parking available on a first come, first serve basis in lot C.
