The U.S. Women's National Soccer team hosts China Sunday night at 7 p.m. ET at PPL Park before what is set to become the second-largest women's soccer crowd in Pennsylvania state history.

The 18,500-seat stadium has already sold out, which will make the crowd for Sunday's match second in Pennsylvania history only to a 2003 World Cup match between the United States and Nigeria in Pennsylvania history played at Lincoln Financial Field before 31,553 fans.

The match against China is another step for the U.S. women's team as it prepares for the 2012 London Olympics. The U.S. women, who qualified for the Olympics by winning the CONCACAF qualifying tournament last January in Vancouver, will also meet Sweden, Japan and Canada prior to the Olympic Games. The U.S. women have won Olympic gold medals three times, including the last two Olympics, in Athens (2004) and Beijing (2008).
