US Soccer announced venues for the semifinal phase of qualifying, should the US get past mighty Barbados.
Sept. 10, Toyota Park, Bridgeview, Ill. (vs Trinidad/Bermuda)
Oc.t 11, RFK Stadium, Washington D.C. (vs Cuba/Antigua)
Nov. 19, Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, Colo. (vs Guatemala/St. Lucia)
I've advocated for the use of soccer-specific stadiums for World Cup qualifiers, so this is particularly exciting. Swap out RFK for Pizza Hut Park and it would have been fantastic news.
The US will play Barbados at Home Depot Center on June 15 in their first World Cup qualifier.
