CHICAGO – With an eye on July’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, the United States will play its first-ever game in San Antonio, Texas, when it takes on rival Mexico in a friendly international on April 15.

The match, which was announced without a location in December, will be the CONCACAF powers’ first meeting since a 2-2 draw in front of 59,066 fans on April 2, 2014, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The U.S. begins its 2015 campaign on January 28 with a match at Chile in Rancagua, followed by an encounter against visiting Panama on February 8 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Mexico and the USA have met five times in the Gold Cup final, with the Tricolor ultimately lifting the trophy on four of those occasions.
