    So that narrows down the list of countries we could be facing. Quick someone look up who has the largest immigrant population in those cities.

    Of note, the article does not say which game (June 4th/5th or 9th) is likely slated for DC and which for Cincinnati.

    On twitter, the Barra Brava account noted that the Nationals are not playing at home on the 9th.

    The Nationals are at home on 6/4 at 7:05 pm and on 6/5 at 1:05 pm. That would seem to make a 6/4 game at Audi Field unlikely (because much of the parking is shared). Not sure if they'd shy away from 6/5, also, or if that's enough time between games to sell those same parking spots twice.

    Draw for The Nations League is on Wednesday.

    The US will be grouped with one of Panama, Canada, Haiti or T&T and one of Martinique, Cuba, Curacao, or Bermuda

    Today is the day that we get the draw for the Nations League. I believe it occurs in Vegas, if I remember correctly. Looking forward to a nice Caribbean away trip so I can sit on the beach (again, hopefully in Trinidad).

    According to the Concacaf website, the Nations League draw was to be held at 10am EASTERN today. Yet, I cannot find any information on what happened, and the link to actually watch the draw is not working for me. Has anyone found information on what happened?

    Edit: Oops, it is 10 PM, not 10 AM.

    Kind of sucks. Probably the 2 I would least want to face, just on sheer travel/vacation opportunity. Oh well.

    If you had to put a percentage on how likely it is that USA will be in the Gold Cup final, what would you say? I'm thinking it's about 65%.

    I'm wondering because I'm organizing a trip to Chicago with my brothers and I told them the final will likely be USA vs Mexico.

    I believe there are 5 futbol finals taking place on July 7th this summer. WWC final is that day in Paris. Don't remember the others off the top of my head.

    In Lyon, not in Paris.

    Take those kickoff times with a good dose of salt; Cuba likes to play their games at 3:30pm (EST & local) to take advantage of natural daylight because their stadium lights are not up to FIFA standard. Unless there have been thorough improvements to the stadium (or the national electrical grid!) since their September and November CNL games at home, those kickoff times are going to be moved to earlier in the day.


    Now in terms of venue speculation:

    -If Canada hosts the October game in Vancouver, then Portland becomes a good bet for the Cuba home game.
    -If Canada hosts the October game in Toronto then maybe play Cuba at Red Bull Arena; after two losses to Costa Rica and a loss to Brazil in recent memory, it may help change the fan perspective on that venue and make the players feel more comfortable playing in NY/NJ. Less travel for Euro-based players too.


    -For the November game (hosting Canada before flying to Cuba), the ideal locations would be Florida or Houston but since the USMNT has already played at these two locations early this year, my guess is that they will play in Atlanta. I believe the team has not played there since the Gold Cup loss to Jamaica in 2015 in the old Georgia Dome.
    Drawing 40 000+ for Atlanta United games (even when the team is not as good as last year) and with quick direct flights to Havana, this seems like a logical choice.

    Weird.

    Good feeling that St. Louis will host a game in the Sept-Nov window.

    In Toronto, as announced by the CSA


    Maybe not.

    Reports are that CONCAF are forcing Cuba to play at night; if they can't do this at home...the game might be played out of country!

    Not sure what's going on....

    Take it with a grain of salt, but Wikipedia does list Uruguay playing us in a friendly for the 2nd game of the September window, though it has no date or venue specified. They are playing Costa Rica in San Jose for the first game of that window.

    It would make sense to look to South America for those. Costa Rica, Mexico, and Honduras will be the only CONCACAF teams available (unless you want to look at League C), and I doubt we play anyone from Europe, Africa, or Asia with their various qualifiers going on. Mexico is playing Argentina in the second game of that window, but still has nothing scheduled for the first. It also wouldn't surprise me if we got another US/Mexico friendly for the sake of money.
