Mia Hamm netted the difference in the USWNT's first-ever match in the Columbus area at Westerville North High School as the U.S. downed Italy, 1-0. The match concluded three-straight matches for the Stars and Stripes as the USWNT played previous matches in Cincinnati and Mansfield in the week previous.

Hamm scored once again as Danielle Fotopoulos netted a brace to lead the U.S. over South Korea in its first match at Crew Stadium in front of a sell-out crowd of 23,101. The match remains one of the highest-attended matches in Crew Stadium history.
11-11-2000: USA 1-3 Canada at Crew Stadium
For the first -- and only time thus far -- a U.S. National Team fell at Crew Stadium when the U.S. Women lost to rival Canada, 3-1. The loss was the first match following a heart-breaking Golden Goal defeat in the Gold Medal match of the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.

As America's first professional soccer-specific stadium, Crew Stadium played host to matches during the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup. In front of a sell-out crowd, the U.S. defeated North Korea, 3-0, Cat Whitehill scored a brace while Wambach added another tally to lead the Red, White and Blue to victory on its way to a third-place finish in the tournament.
5-14-2011: USA 2-0 Japan
Ahead of the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany, the U.S. Women recorded a 'Dos a Cero' of their own at Crew Stadium, beating Japan 2-0 behind goals from Wambach and Amy Rodriguez. The two countries would meet again in the World Cup Final, where the U.S. would fall in a penalty shoot-out.
