Cymru to Play FIFA WWC Champions in California

Cymru team huddle during the UEFA Development Tournament fixture between Cymru U16 Girls and Finland U16 Girls at Hollingsworth Bros Stadium, Broughton, Wales

Gemma Grainger’s Cymru will travel to California to face four-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winners the USA on Sunday 9 July at the PayPal Stadium in San Jose (KO 21:00 BST).

The fixture will be the first time that both countries have met for a women’s international fixture and will be Cymru’s final match ahead of the UEFA Women’s Nations League getting underway in September. It will also be the USA’s final preparation match ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Ticket information for travelling fans will be released in due course.

“To play the current world champions in their final match before the World Cup is a fantastic opportunity. To be asked to play them is a real compliment to our players, we’ll be playing top ranked teams in the Nations League in September so it’s great we can prepare for that against one of the best teams in the world.”
