New York City may have one more chance to celebrate the glory of the U.S. Women’s National Team.

Page Six reports that the USWNT will play England in November at Yankee Stadium.

As part of their multi-stop victory tour, the World Cup champions will take on the third place finishers in front of what is very likely to be a sold-out crowd in the Bronx. Yankee Stadium has an official capacity of 49,642. Earlier this month, New York proved its enthusiasm for the World Cup champions as hundreds of thousands poured into the streets to celebrate the USWNT’s victory parade. The proximity to New Jersey is additionally appealing, as the state’s residents will surely want to celebrate Jersey-born national team members Carli Lloyd, Christie RamponeTobin Heath, and Heather O’Reilly.

It is notable that England almost played the United States in the World Cup final, but an English own goal sent Japan on to the Final. England defeated then-top ranked Germany to take home the third place title.
