At least part of the rumored United States women’s national team games against Russia was confirmed on Monday.

The U.S. will host Russia on Feb. 8 at FAU stadium in Boca Raton, Fla., the federation announced. The announcement indicates that the rumored second game for Feb. 12 should be a go and news will drop about that soon.

Jan. 31 will see the U.S. women kick off their year against Canada in Frisco, Texas. There are also a pair of rumored games against France in June.

FAU hosted the U.S. women on Dec. 15, 2012, in the United States’ last game of the 2012 Olympic gold medal celebration tour. They beat China 4-1.

Boca Raton, of course, was the one-time home of WPS club magicJack. The U.S. has frequently headed to Boca Raton when looking for an East Coast training camp in a warm environment. They will train in Carson, Calif., from Jan. 8-15.

The match on Feb. 8 kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET.
