U.S. women’s soccer bringing world’s top-ranked teams to Boca Raton

January 21st, 2016

FAU Stadium will play host to the U.S. women’s soccer team in March as part of a doubleheader featuring four of the world’s top-ranked national teams.

U.S. Soccer will host three doubleheaders for the SheBelieves Cup, which will feature Team USA, England, France and Germany at venues in Tampa (March 3), Nashville (March 6) and at Florida Atlantic University. The Boca Raton doubleheader — France vs. England at 5 p.m. and the U.S. vs. Germany at 7:30 — is set for March 9.

The U.S. currently sits atop the FIFA women’s world rankings, followed by No. 2 Germany, third-ranked France and England at fifth.

Team USA will forego defending its title at the 2016 Algarve Cup in Portugal, which runs March 2-9, to play the three SheBelieve Cup dates.

The U.S.’s match against Germany on March 9 will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Ticket sales begin Friday at ussoccer.com or Ticketmaster.
