CHICAGO – The U.S. women’s national team will face Mexico twice in April.
The two rivals will play at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. Thursday, April 5 (7 p.m. ET; FS1). The previously announced second leg will take place at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston Sunday, April 8 (1:30 ET; FOX).
The matches will be previews of a possible meeting in CONCACAF Women’s World Cup qualifying this fall.
The match will mark the third visit to Jacksonville for the American women, who first played there when the stadium was named Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in a 2-1 loss to Norway in 1996. Most recently at EverBank Field, the USWNT earned a 4-1 triumph over Scotland in February 2013. The venue is the home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, which are owned by Shahid Khan, the owner of the Fulham Football Club in London.
Tickets for the game in Jacksonville go on sale to the public Friday, Feb. 23, at 10 a.m. ET through ussoccer.com and by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Groups of 20 or more can order at ussoccer.com.
