DiCicco coached the Boston Breakers from 2009 through 2011. He amassed 22 wins and 14 draws in three seasons, and is the only coach in Breakers history to lead the team to a pair of playoff appearances. He took the Breakers to the Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) Super Semifinal at Jordan Field (formerly Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium) in 2010 against the Philadelphia Independence. One year later, he led the Breakers to the first round of the WPS playoffs in Florida against magicJack.

With the U.S. Women’s National Team, DiCicco won the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup in California and a gold medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. During his time with the U.S., DiCicco compiled a 103-8-8 record. He later led the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team to the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup title.

At the July 7 game at Jordan Field in Allston, Mass., tailgate with the DiCicco family prior to the game and share your memories of Tony. Tony's former teammates will serve as honorary captains for the game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. ET. The DiCicco family will lead the teams on the field prior to match.
