US, Canada to clash in Concacaf Nations League Oct. 15, Nov. 15

If you're a soccer fan in Toronto on October 15, you're going to want to be at BMO Field.

That will be the venue for the first meeting between the US men’s national team and Canada during the Concacaf Nations League group stage, Canada Soccer announced on Thursday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 pm ET.

Toronto FC's stadium will also serve as host for Canada's other home match against Cuba on Sept. 7, with an 8 pm ET kick set for that encounter. Canada, which qualified for League A by going undefeated in qualifying, will then travel to Cuba three days later.

The USMNT, which was pre-seeded into League A as a result of reaching the final hexagonal stage of qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, will begin CNL play on October 11 at 7 pm ET at home against Cuba before the back-to-back showdowns with Canada. The US close out the group stage at Cuba November 19 at 7:30 pm ET.

Since they do not have CNL matches in the September FIFA window, the USMNT will play a pair of international friendly matches against opponents to be determined.

At the conclusion of the home-and-away round robin group stage, the winners of each League A group will qualify to the Final Championship, while the League B and C group winners will be promoted to League A and B for the next edition of the competition. Additionally, the teams at the bottom of each League A and B group will be relegated to League B and C respectively.
