The celebration continues for this weekend’s monumental World Cup win by the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.
With a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands on Sunday, it took Mayor Bill de Blasio only a few minutes after the win to officially announce a Ticker Tape Parade down The Canyon of Heroes to celebrate. In his Twitter announcement, de Blasio wrote:
“YES YES YES YES!
To our 2019 World Cup Champion @USWNT: you have inspired the entire country — and New York City knows how to celebrate champions. We’ll see you Wednesday at 9:30 AM for the Ticker Tape Parade down the Canyon of Heroes. #OneNationOneTeam“
This victory marks the fourth World Cup title for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, and broke the 2015 record for most Women’s World Cup victories. The team broke another record during their first match against Thailand this year, when they made the biggest win the Women’s World Cup history, beating Thailand at 13-0. The Mayor went on to express in a formal statement that, “on and off the field, this team represents what’s best about New York City and our Nation. The confidence, grit, and perseverance of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team serve as an inspiration to all who watch them.”
The parade will run along Broadway from the Battery to City Hall beginning at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday (July 10). The parade will end with a celebratory ceremony at the City Hall. You can register for tickets to the ceremony beginning at 2 p.m. today (Monday, July 8), here.
