The United States Women’s National Team will be making a stop in Philadelphia for their Victory Tour on August 29, U.S. Soccer announced on Wednesday.

A roster featuring all 23 of the players who won the World Cup in France will take on Portugal in a friendly at Lincoln Financial Field.

The match will be the fourth for the USWNT at the home of the Philadelphia Eagles and the first in the area since the U.S. played Japan at Talen Energy Stadium in late February.

Previous matches took place in September 2003 against Nigeria (31,553 attendance), November 2004 against Norway (14,812 attendance) and September 2008 against the Republic of Ireland (13,176 attendance).

The August 29 match (7 p.m. ET; FS1, Fox Sports App) will be the second on U.S. soil since the Stars and Stripes became four-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champions. The first game of the Victory Tour will be played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. on August 3 against the Republic of Ireland. Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minn. will host the third game of the tour on September 3. Two more matches will be announced at a future date.
