National Women’s soccer to return to Legion Field

U.S. forward Lindsay Tarpley (5). The United States (USA) defeated Norway (NOR) 4-1 during the third place match of the Women's World Cup China 2007 at Shanghai Hongkou Football Stadium in Shanghai, China, on September 30, 2007.Ironically on the anniversary of the Olympic soccer countdown beginning at Legion Field for the 1996 Olympics, it was reported that the U.S. women’s national soccer team will make its return to Birmingham and The Old Gray Lady on May 3. It’s a tune-up for the national squad as they prepare for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and the first time that Legion Field has been used by either of our national soccer teams since the installation of an artificial turf playing surface in 2006.
