If the United States women's soccer team wins will there be a victory parade?

If the United States women's soccer team wins over Japan tomorrow will there be a victory parade? Like a ticker-tape parade down Broadway in New York City or somewhere else? How was it in 1991 or 1999 when the U.S. women's soccer team won the world cup championship?

Update:

Thanks for the reply Petit but I'm talking about 2011. The finals game is Sunday afternoon EST time so there can't be a parade this Sunday. Are you talking about next Sunday July 24th 2011? So if the US team wins will there be a victory parade in Disneyland next Sunday July 24th?

How was it in 1991 and 1999, was there a victory parade in Disneyland? Not Broadway New York?

The Americans, who add the 1999 title to their 1991 world championship and 1996 Olympic gold medal, will be honored Sunday morning with a parade through Disneyland.

    In the 1999 Women World Cup, over 90,000 people (the largest ever for a women’s sporting event and one of the largest attendances in the world for a tournament game final) filled the Rose Bowl (in Pasadena, California, U.S.A, Los Angeles County) to watch the United States play China in the Final.

    With Briana Scurry's save of China's third kick, the score was 4–4 with only Brandi Chastain left to shoot. She scored and won the game for the United States. "Chastain famously dropped to her knees and whipped off her shirt, celebrating in her sports bra (Nike®)", which later made the cover of Sports Illustrated and the front pages of newspapers around the country and world.

    I hope they win and get the respect they deserve. But, im not sure they will get a victory parade. People in this country generally care very litle about soccer and ladies sports. I wish they would have a parade though. Id go cheer for them.
