CHICAGO (February 20, 2018) – The U.S. Women’s National Team will face Mexico on Thursday, April 5, at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. (7 p.m. ET; FS1) in the first of two April friendlies between the teams. The previously announced second leg will take place on Sunday, April 8, at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston (12:30 CT; FOX). The matches will be previews of a possible meeting in CONCACAF Women’s World Cup qualifying that will be held this coming fall.
The match will mark just the third visit to Jacksonville for the U.S. Women’s National Team, which first played there when the stadium was named Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in a 2-1 loss to Norway in 1996. Most recently at EverBank Field, the WNT earned a 4-1 victory against Scotland in February of 2013. The venue is the home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, which are owned by Shahid Khan, who also owns Fulham Football Club in London.

- The Federación Mexicana de Fútbol officially launched the Liga MX Femenil last year, with Guadalajara defeating Pachuca for the inaugural championship in a two-leg series that drew record crowds of 28,955 and 32,466 fans.
- Across 34 all-time meetings, Mexico has defeated the USA once and drawn once. The win came in the semifinal of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2011 Women’s World Cup, a 2-1 victory in Cancun, Mexico. The setback forced the USA to win the tournament’s third-place match and then a two-leg playoff with Italy to qualify for the Women’s World Cup in Germany.
