Post Olympic matches set for Team USA women's soccer

 

The first two matches following the 2016 Olympic Games for the U.S. Women's National Team have been set, with the Americans facing Thailand on Thursday, Sept. 15 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio before traveling to Atlanta to take on the Netherlands on Sunday, Sept. 18 at the Georgia Dome.

The kickoff times and broadcast information for both matches will be announced when confirmed.

The match in Columbus will mark the first for the USA against Thailand, which made its debut on the world's stage at the 2015 Women's World Cup. Thailand will be the 50th different country the U.S. WNT has faced in its history.

The USA has previously played the Netherlands six times, with the first meeting coming in 1991 in the only win for the Dutch, a 4-3 home victory in Vianen. The USA has since won five consecutive meetings including the most recent, a 3-1 win in The Hague in April of 2013.

Tickets for both games go on sale to the public Monday, Aug. 8, at 7 a.m. PT through ussoccer.com and by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

In Central Ohio, tickets for the game in Columbus are also available at all Ticketmaster ticket centers (including many Kroger stores), as well as the MAPFRE Stadium ticket office (open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

In the Atlanta area, tickets for the match in Georgia are also available at all Ticketmaster ticket centers (including most Walmart locations) as well as the Georgia Dome ticket office (open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
