A huge game is coming to Frisco as the US Under 23 National Team will be facing Colombia with a berth at the 2016 Brazil Olympics on the line.  The match is scheduled for Tuesday night March 29th at Toyota Stadium. The game will be the 2nd leg of a home and home between the USA and Colombia with the opening leg to be played in South America on Friday March 25th.  

Last October, the USA won its three first round games in the CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship before falling in the semifinals to Honduras. The U-23’s bounced back and won the third-place match against Canada to earn a place in the March playoff. Colombia finished second in the 2015 South American Youth Championship to claim its spot in the playoff.

The US Men hope to return to the Olympics for the first time since Beijing 2008, when they posted a 1-1-1 record but did not advance from a group that included Gold medalist Nigeria. The USA’s best showing in the Olympics came during the 2000 Games in Sydney, when the team defeated Japan in the quarterfinals and finished fourth in the Men’s Soccer event.

Tickets for the deciding game go on sale to the public on Friday, February 5, at 10 am CT at ussoccer.com.
