USWNT Will Play Romania twice in November
The U.S. Women’s National Team will play Romania twice in November, opening the two-game set at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, California, on Thursday, Nov. 10 (7 p.m. PT on ESPN2) before traveling down the coast for a second match on Sunday, Nov. 13 at the StubHub Center in Carson (6:30 p.m. PT on FS1).
The matches will conclude the 2016 schedule for the U.S. Women, who have gone 18-0-3 so far this year.
Tickets for the both games will go on sale on to the public Friday, Oct. 14, at 10 a.m. PT through ussoccer.com, including group orders of 20 tickets or more.
Tickets for the match in San Jose can also be purchased by phone at 1-800-745-3000, and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout the Bay Area (including many Walmart locations). [Note: Tickets are not sold at Avaya Stadium except on the day of the event.]
Tickets for the game in the Los Angeles area can also be purchased by phone at 1-888-929-7849 and at the StubHub Center ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
Ultimate Fan Tickets (special VIP packages that include a premium ticket, a custom-made official U.S. National Team jersey with name and number, VIP access to the field before and after the game, and other unique benefits) are also available for both games exclusively through ussoccer.com.
The two friendlies will mark the first matches between the USA and Romania in women’s soccer. Romania, currently 36th in the FIFA rankings, finished second behind France in Group 3 of qualifying for the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro, earning a spot in the playoffs for the final berth to the 16-nation tournament being held in the Netherlands.
Portugal will host Romania in the first leg on Oct. 21 at Lisbon’s Estádio do Restelo before the return match four days later in Cluj. Romania barely missed out on being one of the six best group runners-up, and thus qualifying directly for the final tournament. Russia edged Romania for the sixth spot by just one more goal scored.
