U.S. Women to play Scotland twice in February
CHICAGO - New U.S. Women's National team coach Tom Sermanni will get a double look at his new team against his native country's national team, when the U.S. Women's National Team makes a two-game tour of the southeast to open 2013 as a second match against Scotland has been added on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn.
The kickoff time at the home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans and broadcast information will be released at a later date.
Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, Jan. 11, at 10 a.m. CT through ussoccer.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout Central Tennessee (including Kroger stores) and the LP Field ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
The USA will play its first match of 2013 on Feb. 9 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. That match will kick off at 5 p.m. ET.
The Feb. 13 match will mark just the fourth for the U.S. WNT in the state of Tennessee.
