It’s not Philadelphia but the U.S. Men’s National Team is returning to the region with a game against Colombia slated for June 8 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.

The match will be part of both teams’ preparations for the 2024 Copa America to be held in the United States this summer.

“As we continue to build toward this summer’s Copa America and the 2026 FIFA World Cup, we relish the challenge of competing against the best possible opponents and Colombia checks that box. They have been a standout team in World Cup Qualifying and showcase some of the world’s top talent,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said in a news release. “We are thrilled to have the U.S. Men’s National Team back to FedExField and the DMV, a place with an incredible history of support for our team and for soccer overall.

The match will be broadcast live on TNT, Telemundo, Universo, Max and Peacock en Español and on Fútbol de Primera radio. Coverage begins at 5 p.m. ET, with kickoff set for 5:37 p.m.

Los Cafeteros are currently red-hot, riding a 19-match unbeaten streak heading into the March international window. Colombia currently sits in third place in South American qualifying for the 2026 World Cup with an unblemished 3-0-3 record. This summer, Colombia will aim to build on a third-place finish at the last Copa América and secure its second title after topping the podium on home soil in 2001.

The U.S. Men’s National Team program is preparing to compete in three significant competitions in 2024. The USMNT kicks things off with the Concacaf Nations League Finals in March. After winning the first two editions of the tournament, the U.S. will face Jamaica in the semifinals on March 21 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

In June, the U.S. will compete in the famed Copa América alongside all 10 Conmebol nations, including defending World Cup and Copa América champion Argentina. Held in 14 cities across the United States, the USMNT will compete in Group C and face Bolivia, Panama, and Uruguay.

The U.S. has a W-L-D record of 3-14-4 all-time against Colombia, which includes a scoreless draw at Subaru Park (then known as PPL Park) in October 2010.

Tickets for the June 8 match at Fedex Field in Landover, MD go on sale to the public Friday, February 16 at 10 a.m ET.

The pre-sale for this match will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. ET and run to Friday, Feb. 16 at 8 a.m. ET.
