Watch Megan Rapinoe, Carli Lloyd and other members of the US Women’s National Soccer Team make their way into the Canyon of Heroes during the 2019 ticker tape parade for the World Cup champions.
More on the parade: Thousands of super fans from across the country have descended on the Canyon of Heroes, where the U.S. women’s national soccer team is being feted for the second time with a confetti parade through the heart of New York City.
Revelers were seen lining Broadway, between the Battery and City Hall, in the pre-dawn hours, well ahead of Wednesday’s 9:30 a.m. parade start. Just before the grand kickoff, the U.S. players hugged each other as they got on their colorful float, Megan Rapinoe sipping from a glass of champagne with a smile.
Later, cheers erupted and flags waved en masse as the world champions launched into their victory parade, taking plenty of selfies along the way.
The festivities come four years to the day that crowds tossed heaps of confetti in the city to celebrate the team and its 2015 Women’s World Cup title. This year, fans were clamoring to get a glimpse of the 2019 women’s world cup heroes including Alex Morgan, Rose Lavelle, Carli Lloyd, Tobin Heath, Ali Krieger, Kelly O’Hara, Ashlyn Harris and Jill Ellis.
