US Women to Play in Cary this July

Update: We can now confirm the game will be July 30th at 1pm vs. Canada. Triangle Professional Soccer and US Soccer have called a joint press conference for 3:15pm tomorrow (halftime of the USA v. Germany men's game) to announce an event that will be held at SAS Soccer Park in July, 2006." Considering that the press advisory states that US Women's National Team players Heather O'Reilly and Cat Whitehill will be in attendance at the press conference and that a tenative date of August 6th for a US Women's Team game has been reserved on the SAS Soccer Park calendar for a while now, it seems logical that this press conference will move that tenative match date up a week or two into July. A quick check of ESPN2's long-range TV listings does in fact show three US Women's National Team games in July against unnamed opponents:
  • 7/15 6pm EST
  • 7/23 4pm EST
  • 7/30 1pm EST
Considering that the first two start times look like West Coast match times, I'm betting that the Cary date is July 30th. I guess we'll know for sure tomorrow. The US Women's team will be returning to SAS Soccer Park where they last played in October 2002 when they bested both Australia and Italy by identical 4-0 scorelines in the first round of the Nike Cup.
