“We are excited to welcome the world champion U.S. Women’s National Team to Lower.com Field in April,” said Columbus Crew President & General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “We are grateful for the opportunity to host U.S. Soccer for the third time in just six months and showcase the state-of-the-art facilities in Columbus."
This will be the four-time World Cup champion and four-time Olympic gold medalists’ first visit to Lower.com Field, and their tenth all-time match played in Columbus. Lower.com Field recently played host to the U.S. Men’s National Team for World Cup qualifiers on October 13, 2021, and January 27, 2022.

Uzbekistan, which gained its independence and became a country in 1991 following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, will be the 55th different country the USA has played as women’s soccer continues to blossom around the globe. Uzbekistan is ranked 45th in the world and seventh in Asia.
