U.S. Women to face Russia in Atlanta

CHICAGO - The U.S. Women's National Team will face Russia for a second time in a span of four days when both teams travel to Atlanta for a game at the Georgia Dome on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

Kickoff for the USA's first match in the city of Atlanta and first in the area since 2010 is set for 7:30 p.m. ET and will follow a Feb. 8 meeting at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Fla. (3:30 p.m. ET kickoff).

The USA will embark on an almost three-week road trip that begins in Texas with a match against Canada on Friday, Jan. 31, at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas (FOX Sports 1, 8 p.m. CT kickoff). The U.S. team will then travel to Boca Raton for the first match against Russia before moving up to Atlanta to finish the three-game set.

The USA has not faced Russia in more than a decade, with the last meeting on Sept. 29, 2002 - a 5-1 U.S. victory in Uniondale, N.Y. Russia put in a respectable performance in group play at last summer's UEFA Women's Championship, falling to France 3-1 before tying England and Spain, both by 1-1 scores.

Tickets for the game in Atlanta go on sale to the public Saturday, Jan. 18, at 10 a.m. ET through, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout the Atlanta area (including many Publix stores), as well as the Georgia Dome ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
