If you were one of the countless fans swept up in the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team celebration following their World Cup victory, I hope that you’ll bring that same energy to the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team’s matches at CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, Aug. 2-4, 2019. Tickets to Team USA’s three matches start at $25 each and are available via Ticketmaster.

Granted: Soccer (or fútbol) is the most popular sport on the planet, and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team is in the midst of one of the most dominant World Cup runs in history, having won four FIFA Women’s World Cups. While the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team may not be household names, they’re still our national team, and they’re performing at the same level, defeating teams that most folks think are the best in the world. As I understand it, the Americans are currently ranked third in the world, and these matches will determine whether or not they compete in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.
Need a little more info to help you cheer for Team USA? I found a good recap of their season here.
Here’s the schedule of Team USA’s matches for Aug. 2-4:
8/2 USA vs. Kazakhstan 6 p.m. CT
8/3 USA vs. Bulgaria 5 p.m. CT
8/4 USA vs. Argentina 1 p.m. CT
All three Team USA matches will air live on either NBC Sports Network, the Olympic Channel or NBC.
For folks who are really into volleyball, there are three-day ticket packages available that’ll save you some money, plus optional meet-and-greet ticket packages that will provide fans with access to the players and coaching staff, warm-ups and practices, and more.
