U.S. – Mexico Meet at Red Bull Arena on May 26 in Final ‘Countdown to the Cup’ Match
HARRISON, N.J. (December 6, 2018) – Red Bull Arena will host the U.S. Women’s National Team and the Mexico Women’s National Team on May 26 as part of the USWNT’s Send-Off Series ahead of the FIFA 2019 Women’s World Cup, U.S. Soccer announced today. The U.S. and Mexico will meet at noon in the final match before the U.S. team travels to France.
“This schedule checks a lot of important boxes in our preparation for the World Cup,” said U.S. WNT head coach Jill Ellis. “We’ll get to experience a variety of teams in regard to their strengths and styles of play and almost all of the countries will be in their World Cup preparation as well. We are playing tough games in Europe, which is vitally important, and also get to play quality opponents in front of our home fans at venues all across the USA. It will go fast, but these games will be a major factor in pushing us to be at our peak once we arrive in France next summer.”
The USA also played its final send-off match before the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup at Red Bull Arena, drawing 0-0 with the Korea Republic. This will be the sixth match for the U.S. Women at the home of the New York Red Bulls.
