San Diego, California - The County’s Waterfront Park will host its first major sports viewing event on Sunday, July 5 with a live showing of Team USA competing in the Women’s World Cup soccer championship match.

The team will face Japan in a rematch of the final four years ago when Team USA lost to Japan.

The game will be telecast on a giant 20 by 27-foot high-definition screen designed for daytime viewing. Just one day after the Fourth of July, sports fans are invited to show their patriotic spirit and cheer on the American women as they play in the Cup’s final in Vancouver.

This free, family-friendly event starts at 4 p.m. at the County’s downtown park at 1600 Pacific Highway, but sports fans can stake out their spot early. They can make a day of it and bring picnics, blankets, suntan lotion and of course, their team spirit!

Food trucks will be on hand and the concession stand will also be open. No alcohol will be allowed at this event and all other usual Waterfront Park rules will apply. The fountains will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Parking may be limited so public transportation is recommended. For more information, contact the Waterfront Park at (619) 232-PARK (7275).
