Tonight at 8:00pm ET on ESPN, the 1999 U.S. Women’s Soccer team will be profiled in a documentary collaboration between ESPN Films and ESPN W called “The 99ers.” The film will air as part of ESPN’s “Nine for IX” series.
This women’s team roster, who won the 1999 Women’s World Cup, catapulted soccer to center stage here in the United States. It was this team’s winning streak that ignited the soccer craze locally.
Most people remember Brandi Chastain’s emotional celebration of the 1999 win, but tonight you can hear from Abby Wambach and other current U.S. Women’s Soccer team members as they recall that pivotal moment and how it transformed the sport here in America.
CENTURY 21® Real Estate is a proud sponsor of U.S. Soccer and we encourage you to tune in tonight. For more information and behind-the-scenes outtakes from “The 99ers,” click here.
