CHICAGO – For the U.S. men’s national team’s first match of the Concacaf Nations League, the U.S. Soccer Federation has selected Austin, Texas to host Grenada on June 10.

The game at Q2 Stadium will kick off the USA’s defense of the CNL title, with kickoff time and broadcast information to be finalized in the near future.

The USMNT was drawn into Group D of the Nations League A with El Salvador. The USA will travel to face La Selecta on June 14 in San Salvador.

“The facilities in Austin are simply world class,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said in a statement. “We have had incredible experiences there in the Gold Cup and World Cup Qualifying, and we think it’s the perfect venue to begin the defense of our Nations League title.”

After a 3-2 defeat of Mexico in extra time of the inaugural championship match, the USMNT opens its title defense during the upcoming June FIFA international window. The USA will host fellow World Cup finalists Morocco on June 1 in Cincinnati, with a second opponent and venue to be announced in the near future.

Presales for the match will begin on Monday, April 25 with the public sale beginning on Friday, April 29.
