CHICAGO (Aug. 10, 2012) - A little more than a week after winning the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, tickets for the first two U.S. Women's National Team Victory Tour matches in Rochester, N.Y., and Carson, Calif., will go on sale on Friday, Aug. 17.
The U.S. WNT will face Costa Rica in its first match after winning the Olympic Championship on Saturday, Sept. 1, at Sahlen's Stadium in Rochester, N.Y., the hometown of U.S. forward Abby Wambach. Two weeks later, the second leg of the Victory Tour will take place Sept. 16 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., when the United States will take on Australia at 12:30 p.m. PT. Both matches will be broadcast live on NBC, and fans can also follow through ussoccer.com's Match Tracker and via Twitter @ussoccer_wnt.
For the match in Carson, tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, Aug. 17, at 10 a.m. PT through ussoccer.com, by calling 1-888-929-7849, and at The Home Depot Center ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT).
Ultimate Fan Tickets (special VIP packages that include a premium ticket, a custom-made official U.S. National Team jersey with name and number, VIP access to the field before and after the game, and other unique benefits) are also available for both games exclusively through ussoccer.com.

For the match in Carson, the sale begins at ussoccer.com on Thursday, Aug. 16, at 10 a.m. PT and runs until Friday, Aug. 17, at 8 a.m. PT. Visa will be the only payment method accepted through the Visa presale and is the preferred card of U.S. Soccer. Terms and conditions apply.
The match at The HDC will be a homecoming of sorts for a number of WNT players who grew up in Southern California. Among these are forwards Alex Morgan (Diamond Bar) and Amy Rodriguez (Lake Forest), midfielder Shannon Boxx (Redondo Beach) and defender Rachel Buehler (Del Mar).
The U.S. WNT plays at The Home Depot Center for the first time since a 1-0 victory against China PR on Dec. 13, 2008. The team is 9-0-0 at the home of U.S. Soccer's National Training Center.
