If you’re in Philadelphia, or were planning to be there Sunday, and were thinking about dropping in to PPL Park to check out the U.S. women’s progress ahead of the London Olympic bid, well, unless tickets already are in hand you’ll need a Plan B.

Sunday’s friendly against China is sold out. So, all 18,500 seats of PPL Park will be full for the first of four U.S. tune-ups over the next month.

According to U.S. Soccer, the crowd will become the second-largest in Pennsylvania to see a U.S. women’s match; a crowd of 31,553 watched in 2003 the Americans’ 5-0 victory against Nigeria at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. That was during the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
