It’s the city’s first ticker-tape parade since the USWNT’s 2015 World Cup victory.
The 2015 parade had attracted tens of thousands of fans and cost the city an estimated $1.5 million and was New York’s first to honour a women’s team. It was also the first time New York celebrated national athletes with a ticker-tape parade since 1984, when the victors at the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles were given a hero’s welcome.
New York City has hosted 206 parades along the Canyon of Heroes since the first one to celebrate the dedication of the Statue of Liberty in 1886.
