The US men’s national team will soon find out who and when they will play in the fall when the Concacaf Nations League draw takes place later this month.
Concacaf announced on Wednesday that the draw, which will be held at The Chelsea Theater, in Las Vegas, is set for March 27 at 10 pm ET. The group stage for the competition, which continues its qualification phase from March 21-24, will be played from September-November. The Final Championship is set for 2020.
As a result of its spot in the hexagonal stage in qualification for the 2017 FIFA World Cup, the United States, along with Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, Panama and Trinidad & Tobago have been pre-seeded directly into League A.
Teams from the Qualifying Phase will be ranked from 1-34, based on points earned, goal difference and a series of additional tie breaker criteria to determine placement into Leagues A, B and C of the inaugural Concacaf Nations League. Canada are currently third, behind Curacao and Haiti heading into their final qualifying match against French Guiana on March 24.
The 41 participating teams will be allocated in the pots according to the League they have qualified for as well as by the Concacaf Ranking as of November 2018.
