A sold-out crowd of 26,467 fans packed Red Bull Arena on Saturday for the final USWNT Send-Off Series match against Korea Republic. Among that group were thousands of female supporters. See below for some of the best #SheBelieves chatter on social media during Saturday’s match:
The United States Women’s National Team launched a campaign earlier this month to inspire young girls that they can accomplish all of their goals and dreams. The #SheBelieves campaign was conceived and developed by the USWNT players to give back to the fans that have always shown a massive amount of support for the red, white and blue.
Next up, the USWNT travels to Canada on Tuesday for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015. The tournament begins on June 6 and the United States will play their opening group stage match against Australia on June 8.
Walter Bahr was an American soccer icon, a renaissance man and one of the most beloved figures in the history of the sport in the United States. He excelled at the game at several levels, most notably as a member of the history-making U.S. Men’s National Team that upset England 1-0 at the 1950 FIFA World Cup.
He also was a successful coach at Penn State University and became an ambassador of the game, heading the U.S. delegation for many international matches and competitions. He also was the patriarch of an athletically talented family that included three sons who played professional soccer and a daughter who was an all-American gymnast.
Bahr, who was the last surviving member of the 1950 U.S. team that stunned England and the rest of the world, passed away on June 18, 2018. Few, if any other players, enjoyed the influence Bahr had over his many decades being associated with the beautiful game.
