Colorado will welcome back the US women’s national team on June 25th. The Yanks will play two friendlies in June ahead of the Concacaf W Championship in July. In the game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, the Stars and Stripes host Colombia.

The USWNT is scheduled to kickoff at 5:30 p.m. MT and will be broadcast on FS1.

Colombia is currently ranked 26th in the world and second in South America behind Brazil.

“Colombia has a good chance of making it to the World Cup and both teams are in our final preparations for our qualifying tournaments. So I expect some hard-fought games between players fighting to represent their country in some really important games,” US head coach Vlatko Andonovski said in a press release. “When we get to Colorado we will have a stretch of more than two months where the players have been with their clubs and away from the national team environment, so we will try to make the most of our last few days and games together before going to Mexico to qualify.”

The Concacaf W Championship serves as a qualifier for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup and the 2024 Olympic Games.

Advance ticket sales for the game begin Wednesday, April 27th, and public sales begin Monday, May 2nd.

It’s USWNT’s 9th game against Colombia, the Americans have a 7-0-1 record.

The USWNT has three regular conscriptions, namely Coloradans, Lindsey Horan (Golden), Mallory Pugh (Highlands Ranch) and Sophia Smith (Windsor). Midfielder Jaelin Howell (Windsor) is also from Centennial State and has a chance to play.

The USA have played six games at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, most recently on April 4, 2019 in a 5-3 win over Australia. Pugh scored twice.

The USWNT is very cozy in Colorado and is hosting a training camp in Commerce City in October 2020.
