MAKING THEM AVAILABLE
More seats to go on sale for USWNT game
CHICAGO - Tickets for the U.S. Women's National Team's first post-Olympic match against Costa Rica on Saturday, Sept. 1, at Sahlen's Stadium in Rochester, N.Y., will go on sale to the public on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 11 a.m. CT.
With more than 11,000 tickets already sold during the general and a sponsor pre-sales, U.S. Soccer delayed its initial public sale date to work with stadium officials to expand the venue's seating capacity.
A total of 1,000 temporary bleacher seats have been added in the south end of the stadium and will be sold as reserved seating. A limited number of standing-room-only tickets and seats in other areas of the stadium also will be available for purchase.
Public tickets will be limited to six per purchaser and will be only available online through Ticketmaster.com. No phone or over-the-counter sales will be permitted.
The match will kick off at 1:30 p.m. CT and will be broadcast live on NBC. Fans can also follow the match through ussoccer.com's Match Tracker and via Twitter @ussoccer_wnt.
