The U.S. and Mexico will meet for the first time since both teams advanced to the Round of 16 at last summer’s FIFA World Cup. The previous friendly between the teams was a 2-2 draw in front of 59,066 fans on April 2, 2014, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
The Alamodome previously hosted U.S. Soccer when the Women’s National Team won 4-0 against Australia on Oct. 20, 2013. Despite it being the first U.S. MNT visit to San Antonio, the team is no stranger to the state of Texas. The game in April will be the team’s 19th game in the state of Texas since 1988, and the fifth against Mexico in the Lone Star State. The U.S. MNT has previously played in Arlington, Dallas, Frisco, Fort Worth, Houston and Irving.
The U.S. begins its 2015 campaign on Wednesday, Jan. 28, with a match against Chile at Estadio El Teniente in Rancagua, Chile (6 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 2, UniMas, UDN).
The game against Mexico comes 15 days after the U.S. closes out a two-game trip to Europe that includes games against Denmark on March 25 (3 p.m. ET, ESPN2, UniMas, UDN) and Switzerland on March 31 (12 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1, UniMas, UDN).
