Solo was Named 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Golden Glove Award Winner
The Seattle Storm Friday announced that it will honor Seattle Reign and USA Women’s National Team keeper Hope Solo for her gold medal at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup this past summer in Canada.
A World Cup Champion, three-time Olympic medalist and winner of the 2011 and 2015 FIFA World Cup Golden Glove awards, Solo is widely regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world. She has more caps (179), wins (137), shutouts (89) and starts (172) than any other goalkeeper in U.S. history. During the 2015 World Cup in Canada, she achieved her lifelong dream as a soccer player: delivering the USWNT its first World Cup gold since 1999.
Solo will be honored in a halftime ceremony at the Storm game on August 30 vs. the Washington Mystics. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. at KeyArena.
The Seattle Storm and Seattle Reign are coming off a successful “ReignStorm” night at the Reign vs. Boston game Wednesday night on the Moda Pitch at Memorial Stadium, where the Reign clinched the NWSL Shield for the second-straight year. The first 4,000 attendees received an exclusive “ReignStorm” scarf.
