For the first time in Concacaf Nations League play, the tournament’s semifinal, third place match, and final will be played in Las Vegas.
Allegiant Stadium will serve as host venue for June’s final four this summer, Concacaf announced Monday. The semifinal round will be played on June 15 before the third place match and final will be played on June 18.
Las Vegas previously hosted the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup Final, where the U.S. men’s national team defeated Mexico 1-0 thanks to a 117th minute winner from Miles Robinson.
“The City of Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium will be tremendous hosts of the 2022/23 Concacaf Nations League Finals,” Concacaf President and FIFA Vice President Victor Montagliani said. “We all enjoyed an outstanding Gold Cup Final at the same venue in 2021, and I have no doubt the quality of the teams combined with the world-class facility will draw fans from across our region.
“The Concacaf Nations League has already transformed men’s national team football in our Confederation, providing a consistent calendar of official matches for all 41 of our Member Associations, and allowing their teams to grow and thrive on and off the pitch, and ultimately to strive to reach the next level,” he added. “I am looking forward with great anticipation to the Finals of the second edition of this wonderful competition.”
The four League A group winners will advance to the semifinal round with the No. 1 ranked team facing the No. 4 ranked team. No. 2 will meet No. 3 also in the final four, with the winners advancing to June 18th’s final.
El Salvador, Honduras, Jamaica, and Panama are currently leading the groups in League A, with Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the USMNT also in contention. Group stage action will conclude this month with Thursday kicking off the final set of group stage matches in Leagues A, B, and C.
The USMNT travels to Grenada on Friday before hosting El Salvador on Monday, March 27 at Orlando City’s Exploria Stadium.
