Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, will play host to the United States and Mexico women’s national teams on Sept. 13. The match will be the first of two between the teams, with the second taking place on Sept. 18 in Rochester, N.Y., as previously announced.
The match at Rio Tinto Stadium, the home of MLS’s Real Salt Lake, will take place at 6:30 p.m. ET. No TV information has been released.
The U.S. women last played in Rio Tinto Stadium on June 30, 2012, beating Canada, 2-1. Mexico and the United States played the first-ever women’s international match in the stadium on March 31, 2010, in the “Snow Clasico.” The U.S. beat Mexico 1-0 in a huge snow storm, in what was Alex Morgan’s first senior team cap.
The 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship will take place in October and double as World Cup qualifying. The two matches vs. Mexico will be the United States’ final tune-up games before that tournament.
