U.S. Olympic champs to play soccer match in Bridgeview

The U.S. Olympic women’s soccer team, which captured the Gold Medal at the London Games, is coming to Toyota Park in Bridgeview.

Stars of the women’s team, including Alex Morgan, Abby Wambuch, Hope Solo and captain Christie Rampone, are expected to play in a match on Saturday, Oct. 20, against the German women’s team.

The match is expected to be a sellout of more than 18,000 people. Nearly 12,000 tickets were sold the day they went on sale in September.

The game will be televised around the world and is expected to attract thousands of guests to Bridgeview and its hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues.

"More than 250,000 people have visited Toyota Park this year," said Mayor Steven Landek in welcoming the match as another notable achievement for the community and the stadium.

"Those visitors have helped the local economy, both in the stadium and the surrounding areas," he said. "This game will only strengthen the benefit which the stadium brings to Bridgeview."

The match is part of the team’s Fan Tribute Tour presented by Panasonic, which is bringing the women’s team to select American cities.

The match will start at 5:30 p.m.
