CHICAGO – The U.S. women’s national team will hold its pre-Women’s World Cup training camp at the Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre in Enfield, England, the state-of-the-art home of UEFA Champions League finalist Tottenham Hotspur.
The U.S. team will travel to London after finishing its Send-Off Series with the 3-0 win over Mexico May 26 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. and will spend 10 days at the The Lodge.
The team travels on June 7 to Reims, France, site of its first Group F match against Thailand.
Widely recognized as one of the best soccer training grounds in Europe, if the not the world, Tottenham’s training facility is located in North London about 16 miles from the city center. The Lodge — which opened about a year ago — includes 15 grass pitches, player preparation areas, a pool and hydrotherapy complex, an altitude room, a large-scale gym, specialized rehabilitation suites, luxurious high-end hotel-type rooms for the players and staff, meeting rooms and a restaurant, among other amenities. It is the home of the club’s first team and academy.
Tottenham will face Liverpool on June 1 in Madrid, Spain in search of its first UEFA Champions League title.
