The Chicago Red Stars signed on to play in the inaugural International Women's Cup—a first-of-its-kind event expected to bring top European clubs to Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Red Stars will join National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) expansion franchise Racing Louisville FC and two UEFA Champions League clubs to be named in the coming weeks for games on Aug. 18 and 21.

On Wed., Aug. 18, Louisville will host Chicago in a sanctioned NWSL game to open the IWC before the international visitors meet to cap a doubleheader at Lynn Family Stadium, a soccer-specific facility with a capacity of 15,304 fans. On Saturday, Aug. 21, the IWC's Day 1 winners will meet in the gold medal game and the losers will face off in a bronze medal game.

Racing Louisville FC season ticket members will receive first right to tickets once on sale. Others interested in tickets should sign up at InternationalWomensCup.com for the latest information.
