US Soccer announced two more USWNT Victory Tour dates on Sunday, revealing two encounters against Brazil this October.

The first of these matches will be at CenturyLink field in Seattle, WA on October 21st, and the second at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida on October 25th.

The choice of Orlando is an interesting one as there is speculation that MLS’ Orlando City may be seeking an NWSL side. Orlando hosted a USWNT match in 2013, with an attendance of 20,274 as the US defeated Brazil 4-1. The USWNT last visited in Seattle in 2002, playing in a CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup match at Safeco Field.

USWNT and Seattle Reign FC goalkeeper Hope Solo shares her excitement to play Brazil in Seattle.

“The fans in Seattle and Washington State mean so much to me – I am so excited for the opportunity to play with the USWNT in my hometown. I’ve been playing soccer for 30 years in Washington State and dreamed of winning a World Cup since I was a kid. Being able to bring the USWNT Victory Tour to Seattle and share it with my friends, family, and fans is a dream come true.”
