PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Philadelphians usually fill Lincoln Financial Field for Eagles games — to Carli Lloyd's delight — but they'll be rooting solely for USWNT come next month.

The U.S. Women’s National Team will play two more matches against Portugal as part of its five-game Victory Tour, and Philly will play host to one game.

The match will take place at the Linc on Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale on July 30 at 10 a.m.

The Victory Tour features 23 players from the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup winning team, which broke several records this year: They broke the record for the most goals in a single match as well as the most goals in a FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament. Jill Ellis became the first women's coach to win two World Cup titles. And Alex Morgan scored the most goals in a single game.

The tour kicks off Aug. 3 in Pasadena, California. Following Philly's game, the team heads to St. Paul, Minnesota on Sept. 3. The locations of the final two games have not yet been revealed.
