The New York Post: Ticker-tape parade Wednesday for U.S. women’s soccer team after World Cup win

The World Cup–winning U.S. women’s soccer team will be showered with ticker tape Wednesday in a parade up the Canyon of Heroes in lower Manhattan.

“On and off the field, this team represents what’s best about New York City and our nation,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was campaigning for president in South Carolina as he announced plans for the parade after the team’s 2-0 victory over the Netherlands on Sunday.

“The confidence, grit and perseverance of the US Women’s National Soccer Team serve as an inspiration to all who watch them,” the mayor said in a statement.

Team co-captain Alex Morgan later tweeted: “SEE YA SOON NYC!!!”
