The United States women’s national team will be honored Wednesday with a parade in New York City.

The Americans won their second straight World Cup title on Sunday, beating the Netherlands 2-0 Sunday in Lyon, France.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the parade on Twitter immediately after the team’s win.

“To our 2019 World Cup Champion @USWNT: you have inspired the entire country - and New York City knows how to celebrate champions. We’ll see you Wednesday at 9:30 AM for the Ticker Tape Parade down the Canyon of Heroes. #OneNationOneTeam”

The team also was honored with a parade in lower Manhattan in 2015 — the most recent sports team to be celebrated in New York.

This was the fourth Women’s World Cup victory for the Americans, following wins in 1991, 1999 and 2015.
