The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Scores Their Own Special Wheaties Box
This summer was a special time in sports history as the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team became the first team in World Cup history to win four Women's World Cup titles as the team went undefeated during that this year run. Well, Wheaties wants to honor the team by announcing that the world champions are getting a limited-edition Wheaties box!!!
According, to Popsugar, Only 10,000 boxes will be sold and will cost roughly $23 with fifty percent of the proceeds will go to girls in the game, an organization dedicated to empowering young girls to find their voice and build confidence through sports, health, and leadership programs. The remaining 50 percent of proceeds will go to the US Soccer Girls' Development Academy, which helps to educate and support young soccer players.
USWNT defender Becky Sauerbrunn said in a statement, "It is beyond wonderful to see our team on the cover of the iconic Wheaties box, not only is it an honor to have our team recognized amongst some of the world’s most renowned athletes, this highlights our 2019 world championship title as more than just a win for the sport of soccer, it supports our drive for women’s equality in all sports."
