The United States Women's Soccer Team made history on Sunday with a 5-2 win over Japan in the final of the Women's World Cup.
Not only did they become the first women's soccer team to win three world cups, but captain Carli Lloyd also scored the fastest hat trick in both men's and women's World Cup history with a bomb from the middle of the field.
To recognize their accomplishments, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio will be hosting a ticker-tape parade on Friday, a New York tradition. The first ticker-tape parade celebrated the Statue of Liberty in 1886. Since then, it has been held to recognize the wins of New York sports teams, along with figures such as Nelson Mandela and Amelia Earhart.
The USWNT will be the first group of women to be honored, along with being the first team not based in the city to receive a parade.
The parade will be taking place at 11am, in the Canyon of Heroes along Broadway. Congrats ladies!
Are you in the area? Will you be going?
