The athletes were thrown a ticker tape parade after their second consecutive FIFA Women's World Cup win on Sunday when they beat the Netherlands 2-0 in France. After their victory, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the event would take place on Wednesday morning.
The parade starts at Battery Park and heads north along Broadway to City Hall, where the team will be greeted by de Blasio. This route is known as the Canyon of Heroes -- the location of Olympic team celebrations and other ticker tape parades -- and will commemorate the soccer team's fourth World Cup title since 1991.
As expected, fans of all ages came out to celebrate with the champions, and the team tweeted a bunch of pics ahead of the parade. An all-female drumline kicked off the festivities Wednesday morning, playing under a banner that read, "One Nation. One Team."
Good Morning America's Robin Roberts then took the podium to introduce head coach Jill Ellis, followed by all 23 members of the winning team. Naturally, the ladies received plenty of praise from the excited crowd.
"New York, you're the mother f**kin' best," midfielder and winger Megan Rapinoe yelled out on live TV.
She further declared, "This is my charge to everyone: We have to be better. We have to love more. Hate less. We got to listen more and talk less."
Throughout the parade, the team toasted to their accomplishments with bottles of Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame, the champagne that was created in honor of Madame Clicquot, the fearless businesswoman behind Veuve Clicquot.
