City announces ticker tape parade Friday for U.S. women’s soccer champs

The U.S. women’s soccer team is going to get a heroes welcome from the city Friday.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday that the champs will have their own ticker tape parade down the Canyon of Heroes.

The team, who won their first World Cup in 16 years after they defeated Japan on Sunday, will be joined by the mayor and “special guests” at 11 a.m. The city set up a website, nyc.gov/parade, where New Yorkers can sign up to attend the celebration.

Those interested in attending can sign up Wednesday between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The parade will start at Broadway and Barclay Street at 11 a.m. moving south to Battery Plaza.

“I’m thrilled,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, who sent the mayor a letter Monday asking for the celebration. “This will be a history-making parade for a history-making group of women, and I look forward to helping the mayor and his team put it together.”
