U.S. Mens National Team Tickets

U.S. Men's National Soccer Team Schedule

The U.S. Men's National Team captivated the hearts of millions of Americans over the summer with their excellent play in the 2014 World Cup. For a month this past summer, soccer was finally king in the United States especially when the U.S. took to the pitch. You can be sure that everyone involved in U.S. Soccer will be pulling out all the stops to continue to impress their fans at home and their competition across the globe. One of the great things about international soccer is that even with the World Cup in the rear view mirror there is always plenty of excitement. There are international friendlies, tournaments, and of course World Cup qualifiers that are always thrilling to watch. Superstar goalkeeper Tim Howard is taking a year away from the USMNT which will allow other goalies like Brad Guzman and Nick Rimando to further develop and show Jurgen Klinsmann whet they've got. DeAndre Yedlin was a breakout star during his stints filling in at the back during the World Cup and it will be exciting to see him develop over the next few years.

The USMNT has an exciting friendly against Ecuador at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut on October 10th. What would usually be an interesting match up has taken on extra meaning as Landon Donovan has agreed to join the team for one final game before his retirement. Arguably the greatest player in U.S. Soccer history, Donovan was left off the World Cup roster in a move that surprised many but now gives U.S. fans one last chance to see him play for the Red, White, and Blue and to thank him for all he has done for his country and to advance the popularity of the sport.


The Team

Despite a tough draw facing international powerhouses Germany and Portugal, and Ghana who has eliminated the United States in the past two World Cups, the United States Men's National Team managed to make it out of group play before losing in extra time in an epic game against Belgium 2014 World Cup. The team definitely garnered some attention, not only at home where their games were some of the most highly watched televised sporting events of the year, but also internationally as the team's never-say-die attitude combined with Tim Howard's stellar goalkeeping to make the world at large take notice. The World Cup may have come and gone but the job is never over for the USMNT, several players will be spending the next few years looking to impress and earn a spot on the next World Cup roster, while the team will want to continue to establish itself as the top team in CONCACAF.


The Experience

There is perhaps no event as exciting as seeing a national soccer team compete at home against another country. The men on the team have trained their whole lives to be named to the squad and now that they finally have the opportunity to represent their country and play with and against the best soccer players in the world they are determined not to let either their country or their teammates down. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and gives birth to the most fervent and dedicated fans. One step into the stadium when the national team is playing at home and you will understand what all of the fuss is about. Unrelenting action, otherworldly footwork, stunning slide tackles, and mind blowing, acrobatic saves by goalkeepers will have you seeing exactly why soccer is referred to as "the beautiful game." You will be chanting and singing along and barely even need to use your seat as move after move will have you jumping up and cheering for the home country. Perhaps at no other time will you have felt so proudly to cheer for the United States and felt patriotism as deeply as when you are in the stadium with thousands of fellow Americans cheering on the women's national team.


CONCACAF

Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, or CONCACAF as it is usually called, was formed in 1961 and became one of the six continental governing bodies acknowledged by FIFA. On the men's side ten members of CONCACAF have qualified for the World Cup and half of those have only qualified one time. The United States, Mexico, and Cuba are the only teams to have reached the quarter final round, with the United States doing it most recently in 2002 after defeating Mexico. The only team from CONCACAF ever to reach the semifinals is the United States who did so in 1930. The 2014 World Cup saw CONCACAF teams achieve a great deal of success with Mexico, the United States, and Costa Rica all making it out of group stage. The U.S. and Mexico both suffered heart-breaking close losses in the first stage of knock-out play while Costa Rica advanced to the quarter-finals. The success of those three teams in the World Cup has gone a long way in proving to the rest of the world that CONCACAF is well on its way to becoming one of the elite federations on the planet.


Trivia

The highest the USMNT has ever placed in the World Cup is third when they played in the semifinals in 1930.

There are two main groups of supporters for the USMNT, Sam's Army which began after the 1994 World Cup and sing and chant throughout matches sporting big American flags and banners, and the American Outlaws who wear American flag bandannas over their faces during matches.
