The US Women’s National Team already has post-World Cup plans.

While the Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and the rest of the USWNT look towards China in their World Cup quarterfinals, the U.S. Soccer Federation is already planning their post-Canada tour. In a release from U.S. Soccer Wednesday afternoon, the USWNT will face off against Costa Rica twice in August; first on August 16th in Pittsburgh, PA (1:30 p.m. EST on FOX Sports 1) at Heinz Field and again on August 19th in Chattanooga, TN at Finley Stadium (6:30 p.m. EST on ESPN2).

The Ticas debuted in their first Women’s World Cup this summer, but were eliminated after the first round, finishing third in their group with only two points. The teams last met when the US defeated Costa Rica 6-0 in the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship finals.

Tickets for both matches go on sale to the public Wednesday, July 1, at 12 pm EST through ussoccer.com and by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
