Brandi Chastain, two-time FIFA Cup World Champion and Olympic gold medal-winning player on the U.S. Women's National Team is best known for scoring the Cup-clinching goal against China in 1999 at the Rose Bowl. Today the super-star helped unveil a statue celebrating the historic 1999 USA Women’s World Cup Championship at Rose Bowl Stadium. 

The Stadium has become synonymous with iconic moments, athletes, sporting games and entertainers. 

Without a doubt, one of the most iconic moments was the 1999 Women’s World Cup Championship Team who authored a moment that will forever be iconic with female athletics on a global scale.

That one moment inspired a global generation of young female athletes to strive for equality and greatness. 

Now, with the fast-approaching 20th anniversary of this historic match, this month, the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation is excited to unveil a statue to recognize this moment forever -- with Brandi Chastain and Team USA in front of America’s Stadium in historic Pasadena, California.
