Join New York's Parade of Champions with #MAKERSusa

Join New York's Parade of Champions with #MAKERSusa

The Parade of Champions is scheduled to get underway in New York City Friday in celebration of the U.S. women's national team's victory in the Women's World Cup. 

The United States won 5-2 against Japan in the FIFA Women's World Cup soccer championship on Sunday.

Midfielder Carli Lloyd made history after scoring two of the fastest goals in the tournament’s history, and becoming the first player to score three goals in one game.

The Parade of Champions is expected to draw tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people to Broadway for the 11 a.m. parade. The event will feature floats and marching bands, and will be hosted by broadcaster Robin Roberts and former soccer star Heather Mitts.

The team will be honored by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in front of a crowd of 3,500 people at City Hall Plaza.
