From D.C. United:
The U.S. Soccer Federation has selected Audi Field to host the inaugural match of the Concacaf Nations League for the U.S. Men’s National Team when they face Cuba on Oct. 11 in in Washington, D.C. Kickoff in the nation’s capital is set for 7 PM ET, and the match will be broadcast live on FS1 (coverage starting at 6:30 PM ET), UniMas and TUDN.
With the participants for the final round of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be determined based on FIFA rankings at the conclusion of this tournament, Nations League’s matches have added significance for their impact on the rankings.
“We are excited to be competing in the inaugural Concacaf Nations League where not only is a championship on the line but we are able to play meaningful games in a competitive format. We have seen how valuable the Nations League has been for Europe, and for this region it’s another important opportunity to raise the level of competition,” U.S. MNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said. “As a team that represents the United States, there is something incredibly meaningful about playing in the nation’s capital, and we aim to produce not only a good result but a good performance.”
The U.S. Men’s National Team is joined by Canada and Cuba in Group A of the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League A. Four days after the opener in D.C., the USMNT takes on Canada at BMO Field in Toronto. The USMNT will play its remaining group games during the November FIFA international window.
