The Fan Zone has become a destination of soccer fans at the World Cup with their passion being worn on their chest. The U.S. women’s national team’s final Group D match against Nigeria was huge in the path to the Women’s World Cup final and fans were decked out in their Red, White, and Blue to cheer on the team.
The action and excitement started before even getting into the main viewing area. The variety of jerseys, t-shirts, scarves, etc is impressive.
Once inside the viewing area, the shades of red, white, and blue continued to dominate with a similar theme…the USA WNT #1.
And it was definitely nice to see some of the apparel that came straight from World Soccer Shop including the President’s Day American Outlaws t-shirt as well as the customized AO California 31 USA Home Jersey.
With an unprecedented 3rd Women’s World Cup winners star on the line for the U.S. Federation badge it was fitting to see a retro t-shirt celebrating the women’s last world championship in 1999.
The Red, White, and Blue went on to down Nigeria 1-0 and claim the top spot in the Group of Death. The top spot allowed the team to remain on the west coast of Canada and worked out so that they will not face a seeded team until the semifinals, most likely either France or Germany.
The WNT face Colombia in the Round of 16 and the winner of China vs Cameroon in the quarterfinals.
