Published November 22, 1999
Saturday's stop of the U.S. women's national soccer team's Toys 'R' Us Victory Tour at the MCI Center in Washington, DC, drew 13,258 fans, making it the "second largest" crowd on the tour so far, according to Athelia Knight of the WASHINGTON POST. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala served as "honorary coach" of the U.S. team and "cheered on the American players from the bench" (WASHINGTON POST, 11/21). Meanwhile, 13,121 attended yesterday's match in Raleigh, NC, marking the team's "only Southeastern appearance one of the best attended." December dates on the tour include west coast stops in: Anaheim, San Jose, Tacoma, and Portland (NEWS & OBSERVER, 11/22).
