Riverfront viewing provides scenic location for World Cup excitement
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., April 8, 2019—Bring your family and friends to National Harbor to catch the excitement of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on the big screen (across from 150 National Plaza, National Harbor, Md. 20745.) Matches get underway on Friday, June 7 and continue daily (except July 4 and 5) through July 7.
Women’s soccer is taking off worldwide, including in the U.S. where the women’s national soccer team has now won three World Cup titles and four Olympic gold medals. They’ll defend their title at the upcoming tournament in France. “We are so excited for this,” said Deborah Topcik, marketing director at National Harbor. “Women’s soccer has gained a large following in the U.S. and we can’t wait to cheer them on with one of the largest viewing parties in the region.” National Harbor is extending an invitation to the entire D.C. community including the embassies of the countries represented in the tournament. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs.
With its large viewing screen, National Harbor has become the perfect location to watch major sports. From March madness to Stanley Cup finals, Olympics and World Cup events, National Harbor has developed a large sports following. “Sports fans love to come out, wear their team jerseys and root for their favorite teams,” explained Topcik. “The atmosphere becomes electric with all of the fans!”
The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup is the eighth edition of the quadrennial event, contested by women’s national teams of the member associations of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association. In March 2015, France won the right to host the event; the first time a country will host the tournament and the third time for a European nation to host. Matches are planned for nine cities across France. The United States is in the competition as defending champions.
The group matches start on June 7 and go until June 22 when the round of 16 begins. Quarter finals start on June 27. Semi-finals are on July 2 and 3 (July 4 and 5 are rest days with no games being played.) The match for third place is on July 6 with finals on Sunday, July 7.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
