Reign FC’s 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup stars are set for a banner welcome back to Seattle when they return to National Women’s Soccer League action July 28.

The game against the Chicago Red Stars that night – dubbed the “World Cup Homecoming Match” – has sold out of single-match tickets.

Reign FC, currently third in the NWSL standings, plays at the 6,500-seat Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, Washington. The team’s official website said some seating is still available, but only with the purchase of a multi-game ticket package.

Reign FC will welcome back seven World Cup participants: United States women’s national team co-captain and Golden Ball winner Megan Rapinoe and her teammate and central midfielder Allie Long, plus Australia’s Steph Catley and Lydia Williams, England striker Jodie Taylor, Japan midfielder Rumi Utsugi, and Spain defender Celia Jimenez.

Chicago is bringing its fair share of World Cup stars as well, including starting U.S. goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. Other U.S. players include Julie Ertz and Morgan Brian and defender Tierna Davidson. Japan’s Yuki Nagasato and Australia’s Sam Kerr will also likely make the trip for Chicago, which sits in sixth place.
