HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The U.S. Women's National Team, winners of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, will play an exhibition match in Hawaii this December, according to a statement released on Thursday.

The match, part of the 'Victory Tour' that followed the National Team's World Cup victory in Canada, is scheduled for December 6, 2015, at Aloha Stadium. Team USA will play against Trinidad and Tobago.

“We are excited and honored that the U.S. Women’s National Team will play in Hawai‘i for the first time,” said George D. Szigeti, HTA president and CEO. “With our year-round temperate climate, Hawai‘i is an ideal location to host this premier sporting event. We look forward to welcoming the team, their families and the fans to experience the Hawaiian Islands. Soccer is one of the most popular sports worldwide and having the USWNT here will showcase our ability to host sporting events of this caliber.”

The Women's U.S. National Team has never played in the Hawaiian Islands. The Victory Tour began August 16 in Pittsburgh, and Honolulu will be the seventh stop on a 10-city tour.
