USWNT to play at Allianz Field in October

KSTP reported that Allianz Field, in St. Paul, will host the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) for a match against Korea Republic in October.

The Oct. 26 match will be the final match for U.S. legend Carli Lloyd, who announced that she’ll retire from the national team afterward.

Lloyd is currently the second-most capped player in world soccer history with 312 games played for the USA and has scored 128 international goals, fourth in USWNT history. She needs two goals to tie Kristine Lilly for third all-time.

Tickets for the event will go on sale through a set of presales before becoming available to the general public, Minnesota United says. Season ticket members will get the first chance to buy tickets to the match at 10 a.m. on Sept. 13, followed by members of The Preserve at noon. Subscribers to MNUFC newsletters will get the next chance at 2 p.m. before presales end at 8 a.m. on Sept. 14.

Tickets go on sale to the general public starting at 10 a.m. on Sept. 15.

The USA has faced Korea Republic 13 times and has an all-time 10-0-3 record in the series.
