"In honor of losing the quarterfinal game against Sweden, the US Women will play a slate of 33 games in 6 months for our 2016 Defeat Tour," stated a press release by US Soccer

The Nutmeg News spoke to Sunil Gulati regarding the 2016 Defeat Tour and he had the following to say regarding the arrangements.

"Don't worry, I know what you are thinking but we will not be paying the players a single cent. They lost, and we all remember that they lost, so they don't get paid for this tour. They should just think of this 2016 Defeat Tour sponsored by Nike and Pantene PRO-V as a penance for disappointing everyone," stated Gulati.

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Abby Wambach is called into the USWNT for the Defeat Tour.
