New York City is going to hold a ticker-tape parade to celebrate the U.S. women's soccer team's World Cup victory.

It's the first time in more than half a century that the honor will be given to female athletes.

The U.S. defeated Japan 5-2 on Sunday in Canada to win the World Cup. It's the first Women's World Cup title since 1999

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's office has announced plans for the parade, which will be held Friday beginning at 11 a.m. along Broadway down the "Canyon of Heroes".
