The U.S. Women’s National Team is finally heading to Atlanta.

For the first time in the USWNT’s 29-year history, the team will host a friendly in Atlanta against Russia at 7:30pm on Feb. 12 at the Georgia Dome. The USWNT had played in Kennesaw, Ga. outside of Atlanta proper in 2010.

The friendly is the second in a two-game series against Russia with the two sides meeting on Feb. 8 in Boca Raton, Fla. The series marks the first time the USWNT will face Russia in nearly 12 years. The USWNT has an all-time 5-0-1 record against Russia. The USWNT is ranked No. 1 in the latest FIFA Women’s World Rankings while Russia is No. 21.

The match in Atlanta will finish a quick three-game set beginning with a friendly against Canada on Jan. 31 in Frisco, Texas.


What do you think the USWNT’s 2014 schedule so far? How will they fare against Russia? Will you go?
