NEW YORK (AP) -- Tomorrow the U.S. women's national soccer team will be showered with praise and paper confetti at the first ticker tape parade in New York City since the team's World Cup win in 2015. The parade will start at 9:30 a.m., Eastern time, and move down the Canyon of Heroes, a section of Broadway between the Battery and City Hall in Manhattan. After the procession, Mayor Bill de Blasio will give the players a symbolic key to the city in a ceremony at City Hall.
The team has already started celebrating its record fourth Women's World Cup title. After touching down at Newark International Airport on Monday, players exchanged toasts over Champagne and sang "We Are the Champions."
