USA to play Colombia at Union's PPL Park

In the span of six days, Philadelphia fans will get the chance to watch the best American soccer players, men or women, at PPL Park.

The US Soccer Federation and the Philadelphia Union announced on Monday that the newest MLS stadium, which opened in June, will host a US Men’s National Team friendly against Colombia on Tuesday, Oct. 12 (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2 and Galavisión).

The match will come less than a week after the US Women’s National Team hosts China in preparation for World Cup qualifying on Wed., Oct. 6.

It will be the second USMNT match in Philadelphia in less than five months. Bob Bradley’s men previously beat Turkey 2-1 in their final send-off match before the 2010 World Cup on May 29 at Lincoln Financial Field.

The USA will be looking for their fourth ever win against Colombia in their 15-match all-time series. It has been more than three years since the two countries met at the 2007 Copa América, which ended in a 1-0 win for Colombia. Bradley was the coach at that time, but it is unclear whether he will still be at the helm for the Oct. 9 and Oct. 12 matches against Poland in Chicago and against Colombia in Philadelphia.

Tickets for the US Men’s National Team match will go on sale on Friday at noon ET.
