Mexican women’s national team sets MexTour W
Inaugural MexTour W will visit Houston and Chicago area
Houston Dash forwards María Sánchez and Diana Ordóñez will participate in the first MexTour W, which will bring the Mexican women’s national team on a two-game tour of the United States.
The Mexican Soccer Federation and Soccer United Marketing announced the inaugural MexTour W to coincide with International Women’s Day.
SUM has the U.S. promotional rights for the highly popular Mexican men’s national soccer team’s annual MexTour. That tour consistently sells out some of the biggest National Football League stadiums in America.
MexTour W will start off with more modest goals in smaller soccer-specific stadiums used by National Women’s Soccer League teams.
First MexTour W
The tour will be sponsored by AT&T, Bud Light and Wells Fargo.
The tour will kick off April 8 when Mexico faces the NWSL’s Chicago Red Stars at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Ill. The second game will be on April 11 at Houston’s Shell Energy Stadium. The opponent for that match hasn’t been determined.
“MexTour W will contribute to the growth of the Mexican women’s national team program by creating more international competitive opportunities in its pathway to future competitions while delivering fans the opportunity to cheer on their country,” said Andrea Rodebaugh, the new sporting director for the Mexican women’s national teams.
Mexican national team stars at home in Houston
The Houston MexTour W stop will essentially be a home game for Sánchez and Ordóñez. Those two Mexican national team forwards star for the Houston Dash.
Sanchez and Ordóñez will participate in a special clinic at Houston Sports Park for girls on April 2. That two-hour clinic will be sponsored by Wells Fargo.
The Mexican women’s national team, which is No. 35 in the FIFA world rankings, is trying to rebound after failing to qualify for the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup and Olympic Games.
