The FIFA Women’s World Cup began on Friday, but Team USA doesn’t play until Tuesday. The United States Women’s National Team has four Olympic gold medals to its name in its 33-year history and has won the Women’s World Cup three times, including the most recent 2015 tournament. Needless to say, they’re a force to be reckoned with in the soccer world. (Get to know the women on the roster here.)
We’ve rounded up some of the best places around town to watch Team USA play Thailand on June 11 at 2 p.m.
Grab something sweet from Uprise Bakery and then cheer on Team USA in the comfort of Ragtag’s movie theater seats. Admittance is free, so enjoy!
