The U.S. Olympic silver medalists will play a team of world all-stars in the Discovery Health Channel Women's Soccer Challenge, beginning Oct. 20 in Philadelphia and ending Dec. 15 in San Jose. Among the U.S. women scheduled to compete are Brandi Chastain, Joy Fawcett, Julie Foudy, Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Shannon MacMillan, Tiffeny Milbrett, Siri Mullinix, Carla Overbeck and Kate Sobrero. Last year, Toys 'R' Us sponsored an indoor tour for the U.S. women to celebrate their Women's World Cup '99 victory. The Discovery tour will likely be used to promote the upcoming debut season of the Women's United Soccer Association. WUSA investor John Hendricks is the CEO of Discovery Communications, Inc., which is the parent company of the Discovery Channel. The tour will stop in seven of the eight WUSA markets: Atlanta, Boston, New York (Long Island), Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area (San Jose) and Washington, D.C. The tour won't stop in Orlando, the WUSA's eighth market. CBS will broadcast a tour special on Nov. 12 that will contain highlights from the Nov. 3 game in St. Louis along with features on the U.S. players. The dates for the Discovery tour are
