After a year without games in the U.S., the Mexican National Team is coming back to the America in 2021 as part of its #MexTour.
This year will be a busy one for El Tri with the Gold Cup, Nations League and World Cup qualifiers.
To get ready for those three competitions, Mexico has linked up three friendlies, headlined with a match on June 30 against Panama in Nashville, ahead of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.
El Tri’s match at Nissan Stadium is part of the Mexican Football Federation’s MexTour, a series of U.S.-based friendlies leading up to the biannual Gold Cup, which starts July 10. The MexTour begins May 29, when Mexico will meet Iceland at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Tickets for Mexico’s match in Nashville are scheduled to go on sale next week on mextour.org.
“We are really excited about the game against Panama in Nashville,” said Mexico sporting director Gerardo Torrado said Tuesday.
“Historically, the games we’ve played against them have been really tough. These kind of matches will help us in our preparations for the Gold Cup.”
Mexico is the reigning Gold Cup champion, after beating USA, 1-0, in the 2019 final.
Nissan Stadium will reach near full capacity May 23. The Metro Board of Health announced April 27 it would lift outdoor stadium capacity limits, following COVID-19 protocols.
