The World Cup winners are coming to the Twin Cities.

It was confirmed on Wednesday that Allianz Field has been selected as one of the venues for the U.S. Women's National Team "Victory" tour, which kicks off next month.

The best in the world will play Portugal at the home of the loons on Tuesday, September 3.

The USWNT were last in the Twin Cities in fall 2016, when they played Switzerland at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Now they'll play in a soccer-specific venue that is known for its raucous atmosphere at Minnesota United games, which will surely be just as raucous for the returning world champions.

"It’s always fun to play in cities that we haven’t been to that much and with the opening of the new stadium for Minnesota United, it’s awesome that we’ll get to play in Saint Paul this fall in a world class facility that is another sign of the growth of soccer in the USA," said USWNT midfielder Rose Lavelle in a press release.

"I’m all in favor of any time we can go to Big-10 country and we’re really looking forward to celebrating the World Cup title with all of the fans in the Midwest."

It's the second time this year that Allianz Field will have hosted international soccer, with the U.S. Men's National Team having beaten Guyana there in the Gold Cup earlier this summer.

Presale tickets for Loons season ticket holders become available at 10 a.m. Friday, with the presale for Minnesota United newsletter subscribers beginning on Monday.

Then, general sale tickets become available at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 31.
