The US Women’s National team will be arriving in San Antonio next week ahead of Thursday’s match against Trinidad and Tobago at the Alamodome. Ahead of that event US Soccer announced on Friday afternoon that the World Champions will be hosting an open training session and the World Cup trophy will be appearing throughout the city, throughout the week.
The first chance for fans to experience the World Cup trophy will be on Tuesday afternoon as the trophy heads to Market Square. The trophy will be on display near Mi Tierra café from 4-7PM and will be accompanied by Shannon Boxx, freshly retired from that World Cup winning side.
Following that appearance the full US Women’s Team will be conducting their pitch familiarization session at the Alamodome on Wednesday. That event has been opened to the public, with the session starting at 5pm at the Alamodome.
Fans will be allowed in through the North Doors starting half an hour before the training session and seating is general admission. Lot C of the Alamodome will be open for parking for fans, which will attract a $10 charge ($25 for buses) but admission to the Alamodome itself is free.
Before and after that training session the World Cup trophy will be shown in the North Plaza of the Alamodome. It will be forming a part of a presentation from Coca-Cola, FIFA sponsor who will be giving out drinks and allowing fans to take pictures with the trophy.
The trophy will be in the same position on Thursday before the match gets under way and will be a big piece of the FanHQ pre-match celebrations. The trophy will be on display at Coca-Cola’s tent from 5-7pm before the match, allowing fans another opportunity.
