Women's Soccer

Cover Announcement 


This forever stamp features women's soccer in the United States. For decades, women's athletic programs received very little funding and almost no recognition compared to programs for male athletes. It wasn't until 1985 that female soccer players were able to compete on an international level when the U.S. women's national team played its first official matches in ltaly. However, the sport still received little recognition. Finally, some interest was generated in 1991 when the U.S. women's national soccer team competed in the first official Women's World Cup held in China, and they won the championship.


Despite these successes, women's soccer remained relativeiy unknown until the 1996 Summer Olympic Games when women's soccer was included for the first time, and the U.S. beat China for the Gold Medal. The situation has improved greatly since then, and in 2019, the U.S. made history as the only team to win four FIFA Women's World Cup titles.
