Fans can order the “Rose Lavelle Bowl” from Chipotle for a limited time.

If you want to eat like a soccer star, now you can.

Chipotle has announced that it will be launching two special salads inspired by members of the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT), including Cincinnati’s Rose Lavelle.

The Rose Lavelle Bowl launches July 1st and will be available for a limited time via the Chipotle app and at chipotle.com. According to the release, the bowl is Lavelle’s “go-to” order and includes chicken, brown rice, black beans, fresh tomato sauce, corn sauce, chili, lettuce, guacamole, and a side of chipotle vinegar and honey.

Chipotle also launches “Sofia Smith Bowl”. The bowl, named after Laville’s USWNT teammate playing forward, features chicken, brown rice, black beans, pinto, tomatillo sauce, toasted corn sauce, sour cream, and cheese.

“Fans will be able to sample Rose and Sophia’s core training meal while watching USWNT in their qualifying matches throughout the month of July,” Chipotle says in a statement. Lavelle, Smith and the USA are preparing for the 2022 Concacaf W, the qualifying zone tournament for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The competition takes place in Monterrey, Mexico and runs from July 4-18.

Chipotle customers who purchase either bowl will also be entered to win a signed jersey from each soccer star.

Chipotle is a US Soccer sponsor and says the chain’s “Real Food for Real Athletes” program helps show how to fuel up sports personalities — especially with Chipotle.

“Rose and Sophia are connecting with a new generation of American women’s football, and we’re excited to play a role in enhancing their training regimens as they prepare for the biggest stage in the world,” said Stephanie Purdue, Chipotle’s Vice President of Marketing.

Midfielder LaVelle filmed a “behind-the-scenes” look at her journey to join the USWNT, with an inside hint on how best to enjoy her bowl. Hint: Includes dipping the chip three times.

Earlier this year, Lavelle was named the “Budweiser Woman of the Match” during the USWNT’s first game in the 2022 Shipyards Cup. The star also made headlines for her re-signing with OL Reign in Seattle for a two-year contract.

In September 2021, Lavelle and the USWNT demolished Paraguay in their first-ever NFL game at TQL Stadium in the West End, with Lavelle scoring only in the fourth minute of the game. Lavelle also helped the USWNT win a bronze medal at the 2020 Olympics last year, and scored the team’s first goal in annihilating New Zealand.

LaVelle, who graduated from Mount Notre Dame High School in 2013, earned the title Cincinnati InquirerPlayer of the Year during her first year. After a career at the University of Wisconsin, Laville became the 2017 National Women’s Football League first choice, playing for the Boston Breakers.
