U.S. Women's Soccer Team parade in New York City | USA TODAY

The U.S. women’s national soccer team is honored in New York City with a ticker tape parade.


NEW YORK (AP) — A blizzard of confetti and large crowds are expected at Wednesday’s ticker tape parade to celebrate the U.S. women’s national soccer team in New York City.
The festivities in honor of the Women’s World Cup champs will begin at 9:30 a.m. in a section of lower Manhattan nicknamed the Canyon of Heroes. The stretch of Broadway from the Battery to City Hall has long hosted parades for world leaders, veterans and hometown sports stars.
The events are named for the long strands of ticker tape that used to be showered down from nearby office buildings. The tape has since been replaced with paper confetti.
After the parade, Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio will honor the team with symbolic keys to the city. All tickets for the City Hall ceremony have been issued.

  1. Teresa Huggins , too bad you're too ignorant & hate-filled to understand what justice is. Kap and Rapinoe are more courageous by standing up to the white supremacist, misogynist, and homophobic "u.s." regime than anyone "following orders" to kill and/or die for "u.s." corporate global dictatorship. No wonder you're such a hater.

  2. WNT great, haters Shutup, thank you

  3. I'm glad the women won it for America this time👍🏼😏

  4. If anyone is compiling a national incel registry, these comments are an essential resource. They're all here. So are the Trumptown Guyana punch drinkers. And the Sons of Himmler.

  5. White House is in NYC ?
    The Lady is a Trump

  6. Calm down! It's only women!

  7. I Love USA Women’s Soccer you are play goodddddd 👍👍👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👏👏👏 I wait 4year you are Winning again yes!!!!

  8. Cursing at the end end was classless

  9. All aboard!!! Get on that trump train because we all love you. God bless america. And thanks to our flag.

  10. Ashamed that this team represented the USA in anything. Sorry world.
    -Decent Americans

  11. I cannot support this soccer team when they have made it anti-Trump. They won't visit President Trump because of their crazy liberal beliefs and fake rage . They are then saying 'screw you' to half this nation. They too are splitting this country in half. Spreading more hate. Keep politics out of sports.

  12. So how much did this shenanigans cost the city? But, it’s not ok to have a 4th of July celebration right?

  13. this womens wc will prob be the last wc where the teams r made up of actual females……whats happening in athletics is coming 2 soccer….next usa womens team capt will prob be sporting a beard……

  14. Congratulations one nation one team

  15. I'm American but this is the first time I ever wanted an American team to lose.
    I'm so sick of these low obnoxious IQ jackasses injecting their personal politics into non political events.
    It's like pissing or crapping in the swimming pool on a busy day.
    Just shut up and play! The team captain is an obnoxious creep.

  16. I'm so tired of these negative comments and politics. Can we just enjoy this moment wherein WOMEN won the game for the USA.

  17. Why are there men in the truck?

  18. Women's sport will never get equal pay, as the average boy's high school team can beat them in most sports, that's reality. The unpleasant purple haired player is not doing the cause any favours either.

  19. Too bad they couldn't find a garbage truck big enough to carry them all.

  20. DeBlasio figured out how to get people to cheer for him!!! LOL!!!


  22. not for nothing, but these women deserve to be paid more than the men OR at least the same. they are more popular and successful than the US men soccer team. WHY are the MEN getting paid more? WHY!?

  23. sucker team champions they r rhe best sucking everything 🤣
