The United States and Mexico, which rekindled their searing rivalry in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final two weeks ago, will meet yet again this summer: Aug. 10 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The friendly falls on a FIFA international fixture date, meaning most of the sides’ top performers will receive call-ups. ESPN2, Univision and ESPN3.com will show the match, starting at 9 p.m. ET. Tickets, starting at $38, will go on sale next Friday.
The Americans’ previous visit to the NFL stadium was for their 2010 World Cup send-off match, a 2-1 victory over Turkey in front of 55,000-plus.
The U.S. schedule for the next three fixture dates:
Aug. 10 vs. Mexico in Philadelphia, 9 p.m. (ESPN2, Univision, ESPN3.com)
Sept. 2 vs. Costa Rica in Carson, Calif., 11 p.m. (ESPN2, Galavision, ESPN3.com)
Sept. 6 vs. Belgium in Brussels, 2:30 p.m. (ESPN Classic, ESPN3.com)
The USSF is also hoping to schedule two friendlies in October and two more in November.
