USMNT to face Mexico on April 19 in inaugural Allstate Continental Clásico

CHICAGO – The U.S. Men’s National Team will take on Mexico on April 19 in the inaugural Allstate Continental Clásico, a new annual event that will feature the USMNT hosting a top-tier opponent from North, Central or South America.

The match will be broadcast live on TBS, Telemundo and Universo and streamed on HBO Max and Peacock. Coverage begins at 10 p.m. ET, with kickoff set for 10:22 p.m.

The first edition of the Allstate Continental Clásico will take place in Glendale, Ariz. and will showcase one of the most intense and exciting rivalries in international soccer. The USMNT is aiming for its fourth-straight victory against El Tri on American soil dating back to 2021.

The USMNT has recently earned well-deserved bragging rights against their neighbors with two thrilling victories in continental championship matches. The U.S. claimed the inaugural Concacaf Nations League title in June 2021 with a dramatic 3-2 win against Mexico, boosted by a game-winning penalty kick from Christian Pulisic in extra time before substitute goalkeeper Ethan Horvath denied a penalty from Mexico legend Andrés Guardado in the final moments of the match.

Just two months later, the USA repeated the feat in the Concacaf Gold Cup Final in Las Vegas, this time earning an exhilarating 1-0 victory on a goal from defender Miles Robinson in the 117th minute as the USMNT deployed a squad that was almost entirely different from its Nations League title run.

As attention turned to World Cup qualifying in the Octagonal, in November 2021, the USMNT recorded its third consecutive home victory against Mexico. A new chapter was written in the storied history of Dos a Cero triumphs for the United States over Mexico in home World Cup qualifiers, this time with goals from Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie. The result marked the first time the USMNT beat Mexico three times in a calendar year.

The storied rivalry will continue with its next chapter on April 19. The USMNT is 4-1-2 when playing in Arizona and 3-1-1 when playing in Glendale, where the team most recently earned a 3-0 win against Panama on Jan. 27, 2019.

Presales for the match will begin Wednesday, March 15, with the public sale beginning Thursday, March 23.
