72 Hours to Kick

The U.S. team will hold its one allowed stadium training tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 9, at the Chengdu Sports Center Stadium, site of the USA’s first two games. You know that the beginning of the Women’s World Cup is close when the team steps onto the game pitch. The U.S. team usually holds its stadium training the day before the match, but will get one last run in at the Chengdu Institute of Information Technology on Monday, Sept. 10, before opening the tournament the next day against North Korea. U.S. head coach Greg Ryan and Kristine Lilly will attend a press conference at the stadium before training tomorrow. The stadium holds just under 39,000 fans and refurbishments were completed in November of 2005.
