Team USA is coming – and this one can win the World Cup.

The Colorado Rapids announced today that DICK’S Sporting Goods Park will host an international friendly between the United States Women’s National Team and the Australian Women’s National Team on Thursday, April 4 at 7:00 p.m. MT.

The match will be one of 10 matches to be played as part of the team’s “Countdown to the Cup” tour, in preparation for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France this coming summer. The game will mark the second time the sides will have met at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park.

This will be the USA’s sixth visit to DICK’S Sporting Goods Park and seventh to Colorado.
