BOSTON (AP) — Mayor Marty Walsh is inviting people to Boston City Hall Plaza to cheer on the defending champion U.S. national soccer team in the Women’s World Cup.

The city is holding a watch party at City Hall Plaza on Monday, when the Americans will face Spain in the round of 16. The U.S. advanced to the round on Thursday with a 2-0 victory over Sweden.

The game begins at noon and the viewing party is free.

Officials say bags, backpacks, purses larger than a wristlet, coolers, chairs and weapons won’t be allowed into the watch party.
