NYC to host ticker tape parade for soccer champs Wednesday

The U.S. women's national soccer team will be showered with praise and paper confetti Wednesday at the first ticker tape parade in New York City since the team's World Cup win in 2015

The procession will move up the Canyon of Heroes, a section of Broadway between the Battery and City Hall in Manhattan. Large crowds are expected.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, will then give the players a symbolic key to the city. All tickets for the City Hall ceremony have now been issued.

This story has been corrected to say procession will move up the Canyon of Heroes, not down.
