ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The U.S. women's national team has added an October match against Brazil to its World Cup victory tour.

Officials in Orlando announced Monday that the reigning champions will face the Brazilians in a friendly Oct. 25 at Citrus Bowl stadium. It is the latest addition for a 10-game tour following the World Cup. The United States claimed the title with a victory over Japan last month.

The Americans will open the tour Aug. 16 against Costa Rica at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. There are also matches set for Chattanooga, Tennessee; Detroit and Birmingham, Alabama.

The U.S. team defeated Brazil in a November 2013 friendly at the Citrus Bowl. The stadium was also the training base for the U.S. team for both the 1995 and 1999 World Cups and 1996 Olympics.
