CHICAGO – The U.S. women’s national team will play a two-game home-and-away series against Canada in November.
The first match will be played at BC Place in Vancouver Nov. 9 and will kick-off at 10 p.m. ET. The teams will then travel to the USA and meet at a venue to be determined Nov. 12.
The Americans are 47-3-6 all-time against Canada, which is ranked fourth in the world after its third-place finish at the 2016 Olympics.
The most recent meeting between the teams came in the title game of the 2016 CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship where the USA won 2-0 to take the regional title after both teams had already qualified for Brazil by winning semifinal matches.
While the USA has a long history of success against Canada, the nine meetings since the turn of the decade have featured tight matches, including two ties and three one-goal wins for the USA.
