USWNT to host Colombia for pair of friendlies in Utah and San Diego

CHICAGO – The U.S. Women’s National Team will play two October friendly matches against Colombia, on Oct. 26 at America First Field in Sandy, Utah (9 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. MT on TBS, Universo and Peacock) and Oct. 29 at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego (5:30 p.m. ET / 2:30 p.m. PT on TNT, Telemundo, Universo and Peacock).

While the USWNT has played eight matches in San Diego during its history, this will be the first at recently opened Snapdragon Stadium, home to San Diego Wave FC of the National Women’s Soccer League, which replaced the now-demolished former NFL stadium that hosted the USA four times. The last USWNT match at America First Field in Sandy, Utah was also against Colombia, a 2-0 win for the Americans on June 28, 2022.

Colombia is coming off a stellar performance at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup where it won Group H on the heels of a monumental result against Germany, beating the two-time Women’s World Cup champions, 2-1, on a late header goal from Manuala Vanegas. Colombia then beat Jamaica, 1-0, to win its first-ever knockout match at a Women’s World Cup before falling to Women’s World Cup runners-up England, 2-1, in the quarterfinal.

Like the USA, Colombia has already qualified for the 2024 Summer Olympics in France and both teams will be using these games as early preparation for that tournament. Of the 12 teams participating in the Olympic Women’s Soccer Tournament, just four have qualified thus far: host France, the USA, Brazil and Colombia.


  • Of the eight matches the USWNT have previously played in San Diego, four were at Torero Stadium on the campus of the University of San Diego.
  • The USWNT is 6-0-0 all-time at America First Stadium (formerly Rio Tinto Stadium) dating back to 2010.
  • The USA and Colombia last met in a pair of friendlies in June of 2022, a 3-0 win for the USA in Colorado and that 2-0 victory in Utah.
  • The USA and Colombia have played 10 times previously with the USWNT leading the overall series with a record of 9 wins and one draw.
