REMEMBER EL TRI
USA, Mexico to face off in San Antonio April 15
CHICAGO -- The U.S. men's national team will play its first game in the city of San Antonio, Texas, when it takes on longtime rival Mexico at the Alamodome on Wednesday, April 15, at 8:30 p.m. ET.
The match will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1, UniMas and Univision Deportes Network. Fans can also follow the match live on Twitter @ussoccer and @ussoccer_esp.
The U.S. and Mexico will meet for the first time since both teams advanced to the Round of 16 at last summer's 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.
San Antonio's Alamodome previously hosted U.S. Soccer when the Women's National Team defeated Australia, 4-0, on Oct. 20, 2013. Despite it being the first U.S. men's 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 since 1988, and the fifth against Mexico in the Lone Star State. The U.S. has 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). Following the game in South America, the U.S. returns to host Panama on Sunday, Feb. 8, in a 1 p.m. PT kickoff at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. (TICKETS).
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).
Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, Jan. 30, at 10 a.m. CT through ussoccer.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout San Antonio, as well as the Alamodome ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
