A new stamp is being issued to commemorate Women’s soccer in the United States. The Women’s Soccer stamp will be presented at a ceromony in Orlando on Feb 16th to coincide with the SheBelieves Cup. The ceremony at Exploria Stadium is free and open to the public.
Women’s Soccer Stamp Issued By US Post Office
This new Forever stamp celebrates women’s soccer in the United States. From youth leagues to the elite world champion U.S. National Team, millions of girls and women throughout the country participate in the fast-paced, competitive sport.
The stamp artwork, designed by Antonio Alcalá depicts a female soccer player in action, striking a ball with a side volley. Conjuring the aesthetic of mid-century print design, illustrator Noah MacMillan (1988-2022) used simplified shapes and bold colors to convey the high energy and fast motion of the sport. The somewhat grainy rendering lends a timeless quality to the design, evoking not just a single all-star athlete or era, but the entire legacy of women’s soccer.
The 2023 SheBelieves cup takes place from Feb 16-22 and will feature Brazil, Japan and Canada along with hosts USA. See below or check our TV page for kick off times and broadcast channels for SheBelieves cup.
