USMNT to face Uruguay at Busch Stadium
The United States Men’s National Team will call St. Louis’ Busch Stadium home for a September match as it prepares for the CONCACAF Nation’s League.
The U.S. will face Uruguay on Sept. 10 at the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, where they played once previously. In 2015, the USMNT defeated Saint Vincent & the Grenadines 6-1 before a crowd of 43,454 at Busch Stadium.
The U.S. Women’s National Team played a friendly against New Zealand at Busch Stadium in May as it prepared for this summer’s World Cup in France.
The USMNT is 6-1-2 all time in St. Louis, including 5-1-1 in World Cup qualifiers. The team is 8-1-2 in Missouri.
The CONCACAF Nations League, announced last year, will divide 12 teams into four groups as they try to qualify for the 2022 World Cup at Qatar. Canada and Cuba were drawn into Group A with the United States.
The USMNT is scheduled to face Cuba on Oct. 11 and Nov. 19, and Canada on Oct. 15 and Nov. 15.
