    RE: USWNT v Russian in SLC

    Hmmm....where the heck would they play? I'll admit I've only been to SLC once for the 2002 Winter Olys so I am not at all familiar with the place. So where would they play? On the University of Utah campus at the Oly stadium (I know it's not called the Oly stadium now but I don't know what it's called)?

    One thing we know for sure. The game in SLC has an excellent chance of being played in DRY weather. ;)

    My travel plans are not finalized but I have a trip to SLC scheduled for close to that time. I HOPE it works out to put me in SLC at the right time.

    With my luck lately I will get to go and there will an unusual out of season three feet of snow on top of a two inch ice storm. :D

    Could make for some interesting soccer. Would that give Russia an advantage????? How much of their team hails from the really cold areas?

    I spent a month in Moscow one week in Jan. 1995. IT WAS COLD!!!!!!

    Well I don't have a game on Oct. 6, hopefully that will be a day off from practice too, so I can go catch that game in Cary.

    Prestigious Annual Tournament Kicks Off in Uniondale, N.Y., on Sept. 29, Includes Pair of Doubleheaders in Raleigh, N.C., on Oct. 2 and Oct. 6

    CHICAGO (August 22, 2002) - U.S. Soccer has finalized the opponents, dates and venues for the 2002 edition of the Nike U.S. Women’s Cup, the most prestigious women’s event conducted by U.S. Soccer, and one of the most respected women’s tournaments in the world. The tournament, a four-team, six-game competition, will feature the U.S. Women’s National Team, as well as Australia, Italy and Russia.

    "To have Italy, Russia and Australia in a pre-World Cup event on the East Coast in two WUSA cities, it just doesn't get any better as far as our preparation, our focus and getting our fans ready for our World Cup qualifying,” said U.S. head coach April Heinrichs. "It's great timing for us because the players are coming out of the WUSA season, they get a little bit of break and then we play these three teams that we haven't seen in quite a long time. It's a wonderful opportunity for us to get together for a two-week period."

    In the tournament’s opening match, the U.S. will take on Russia at the Mitchel Athletic Complex, the home of the WUSA’s New York Power, on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. ET (TV broadcast to be determined). The match will mark the third time that the U.S. Women have played at the 10,102-seat, Uniondale, N.Y. venue, having played a pair of matches (a 5-0 win over Denmark and a 2-0 win over China) there in as part of the Goodwill Games in late July 1998.

    Tickets for the tournament opener, which is presented by Philips Electronics, range in price levels from $22 to $55 and are available starting tomorrow (August 23) at 12 noon ET at all Ticketmaster outlets throughout the area (including The Wiz, Compact Disc World, Tower Records, HMV Record Stores and Filene’s) or by calling 516-888-9000 (Long Island) or 212-307-7171 (New York City). Tickets are also available on-line at www.ticketmaster.com and at www.ussoccer.com. Groups of 20 or more can call 1-866-769-7849.

    From there, the tournament heads south to North Carolina, where the U.S. Women’s National Team will
    play two games as part of doubleheaders at the recently opened SAS Park, the home of the WUSA’s Carolina Courage, in Cary, N.C. The U.S. Women will take on Australia on Wednesday, Oct. 2 (presented by Chevy) at 7:30 p.m. ET live on ESPN2, and finish the tourney against Italy on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. ET live on ESPN2.

    Although the U.S. women have previously played matches in Charlotte, Davidson and Greensboro, N.C., the two October doubleheaders will mark the team’s first-ever international games in the Raleigh-Durham area and the first time that the team has played at the 7,000-seat, state-of-the-art venue.

    2002 Nike U.S. Women’s Cup Opponents, Venues Announced

    Tickets for the N.C. doubleheaders, which range in price from $18 to $55, are now available at all Ticketmaster outlets throughout the Carolinas (including Kroger, Hecht's and FYE), by calling 919-834-4000 or going on-line at www.ticketmaster.com. For groups of 20 or more, call 312-528-1249.

    The U.S. has posted a 6-2-2 record in 2002, including a 4-0 win over Norway in the team’s most recent match in Blaine, Minn., on July 21. After the 2002 WUSA season concludes this weekend with the Founders Cup II on Saturday (Aug. 24) in Atlanta, the U.S. team will regroup 10 days later for a Sept. 8 match versus Scotland at Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

    The U.S. Women will be using the 2002 Nike U.S. Women’s Cup as preparation for the 2002 CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup, which is set to take place at four venues along the West Coast from Oct. 27-Nov. 9 and will serve as the region’s qualifying for the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup in China next summer.

    The U.S. has a winning all-time record against all three of its U.S. Women’s Cup opponents, including a 13-0-0 mark over Australia in which the U.S. has outscored their Oceania counterpart 51-8. The U.S. is also undefeated against Russia, holding a 4-0-1 record and outscoring them 22-2.

    The U.S. has a storied history with Italy, including the U.S. Women’s National Team’s first ever match, a 1-0 loss on August 18, 1985. The U.S. holds a narrow 5-4-0 edge in nine all-time meetings, having lost the first three times the two teams met from 1985-1988. The U.S. dominated all five match-ups in the 1990s and 2000, outscoring the Europeans 15-1, but Italy handed the U.S. a 1-0 loss in their last meeting in March 2001 in Reiti.

    "The three styles are great for us,” said Heinrichs, of the competition that the three countries each present. “Australia is the hard, physical, aggressive team. Italy is a counter-attacking, bunkering team, and you have Russia, who is a very disciplined team, more like a Norway or a Sweden."

    The Nike U.S. Women’s Cup has been staged eight times since its debut in 1994, including last year’s abandoned event which was scheduled to end the weekend after the tragic events of Sept. 11. The U.S. has amassed an amazing 21-0-0 record across the eight tournaments winning all seven championships against opponents like Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Italy and Norway.

    I went to the website this morning and called the phone number and neither one had the game in their database. Anyone had any luck getting tickets?

    Where What and When


    My name is Joseph and I live in Sydney AUST© My girlfriend has just finished playing for the Young Matildas at the FIFA Under-19 Women's World Championship©

    As it stands now it looks like she will be making her debut for the Matildas in the 2002 Nike U©S© Women’s Cup© As a result i will be definitely making the trip over to the states to watch her©

    Is it possible for if someone or everyone can help me with some information or point me to relevant web sites© ¥ i would prefer info as it would be first hand and not glossed over ¤

    Here are some of the things that I would like to know

    What is Cary like?

    liberal, conservative etc©©©


    I would like to stay someone inexpensive but also safe© Small hotel nothing fancy, that is clean, has a TV, own bathroom and has not been featured in an episode of COPS© I don't really like back packer hostels© but if that is my only choice I would consider it©

    I have also heard that accommodation can be found at some colleges© Is their a college near by?

    And finally "How the Hell Do I Get There"© ©©©just kidding

    Thanks ever so much

    Re: Where What and When

    Joseph - welcome, and congratulations on your girlfriend's call-up to the Matildas.

    I suggest that you pose your questions in the Carolina Courage forum here. Since the Courage play in Cary, folks there should be familiar with the area.

    Good luck!

    I'm so excited!! Finally the WNT is coming back to North Carolina and i can FINALLY see them play live! Okoay, so i saw them once, but that doesn't count b/c it was the indoor victory tour thing after the '99 Cup and Jules wasn't playing. I've made it my goal to get all decked out in red. white and blue and try to get on TV. LOL. I always wanted to do that!

    This is where the Sam's Army folks are staying:
    Fairfield Inn Raleigh/Cary

    It's close and convenient to the stadium with different types of restaurants, etc. nearby.
