Rochester, N.Y. - Soccer mania gets kicked up a notch Friday at Sahlen's Stadium with Abby Wambach, and an appearance by Alex Morgan.
Wambach will be honored there as the main walkway is re-named "Wambach Way."
Up to 5,000 fans are expected for a practice session for Wambach and Team USA.
Organizers say they're ready to expand seating if more fans show up than expected.
“The bleachers are coming in,” said Sahlen’s President Pat Ercoli. “We're setting up for locker rooms, merchandise tents and things like that, getting the field prepared… for an international match here.”
Big crowds are also expected for an autograph session with Wambach before Friday night's Rhinos game.
Teammate Alex Morgan will be signing autographs at the Penfield Wegmans Friday afternoon. Tickets for that event quickly sold out.
Saturday, September 1, Team USA takes on Costa Rica at 2:30 p.m.
