The USWNT last visited Salt Lake City in the summer of 2018 following their 1-0 victory over China PR. In total, however, they have played five matches at Rio Tinto Stadium and are yet to be beaten, outscoring their opponents 16-1.
Utah Royals FC has a trio of national team members that, depending on final roster decisions, will hopefully be able to play in front of their home crowd. Kelley O’Hara, Christen Press and Becky Sauerbrunn, who have not played at Rio Tinto Stadium since the conclusion of the 2019 National Women’s Soccer League season on October 12, has scored a combined eight goals and four assists on the pitch at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Utah Royals FC and Real Salt Lake season ticket holders will receive presale access beginning on Monday, February 17, at 11 a.m.
General sale tickets for the match will go on sale to the public on Wednesday, February 19, at 11 a.m. via www.ussoccer.com, by phone at (844) REAL-TIX and at the Rio Tinto Stadium box office (open Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.)
