The U.S. beat the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday afternoon, winning its fourth Women’s World Cup title.
In a tweet minutes after the team’s victory, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced there would be a parade Wednesday at the Canyon of Heroes, a stretch of Broadway in lower Manhattan where parades are held, to celebrate the victory.
“To our 2019 World Cup Champion @USWNT: you have inspired the entire country — and New York City knows how to celebrate champions,” de Blasio tweeted.
“We’ll see you Wednesday at 9:30 AM for the Ticker Tape Parade down the Canyon of Heroes," he added.
A limited number of tickets to attend a ceremony at City Hall will be available to the public. Registration opens at 2 p.m. Monday.
Other details about the parade would be released Monday, the city said.
The last ticker tape parade in NYC honored the Women's Wold Cup victory in 2015, the city said. That was also the first time a women's team was honored with the parade.
