The U.S. Women’s National Team will be contending against Japan at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster County, Pa. in their first series on United States’ soil since clinching a ticket to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by winning Pan American Games gold in Toronto. Team USA will take on 10th FIH World Ranked Japan for a total of four matches from Sunday, November 29 to Thursday, December 3 in the Dome Arena. This international series is part of Team USA’s preparatory matches before the Olympic Games and another opportunity to support the team’s journey.
The last meeting between the two teams was at the 2011 Champions Challenge in Dublin, Ireland. USA advanced to the final match against Japan, but fell just short of the gold medal and advancement to one of the most premier international hockey tournament, Champions Trophy. Both teams were present at the recent 8 Nations Tournament in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand in April playing in different pools and did not meet during crossovers.
After a summer of excitement, the USWNT is ready to face another challenge against a highly ranked competitor. Beat the cold and watch the U.S. Women’s National Team heat up the turf!
