CityCenterDC Scores Women’s World Cup Watch Party

The boorish behavior of certain FIFA officials has cast a pall over the beautiful game.  

But goodwill ambassadors at the U.S. Soccer Foundation and Embassy of Australia are hoping to retrain the focus on world-class athletics Monday by co-hosting a free watch party of the U.S.-Australia group match of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup at CityCenterDC.

Kick off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.; event promoters are expected to project the international showdown on a large screen (circa 10th and I Streets NW).  

Admission is gratis, but donations will be accepted in support of USSF’s philanthropic efforts.  

Per organizers, a number of prominent futbol fans have been invited, including D.C. United players, Washington Spirit players and members of the Congressional Soccer Caucus.  

DC Slices , The Orange Cow and SOL Mexican Grill have been tasked with keeping attendees well fed.
