For the fifth consecutive World Cup Qualifying cycle, the U.S. Soccer Federation has selected Columbus, Ohio, to host its biggest match outside of a World Cup and one of the biggest international rivalries in international soccer.
Due to the anticipated high demand for tickets to the match, U.S. Soccer will use a lottery system to allocate tickets among those who apply.
Active members of U.S. Soccer as of September 6, applications will be included in an early lottery selection phase prior to the inclusion of those applications from the general public. Participants in the early lottery selection phase will be sent instructions by U.S. Soccer by the end of day on Sept. 22 regarding the ticket application process. Members of the general public and those who purchased a membership after Sept. 6 looking to apply for tickets can visit www.ussoccer.com/usavmextickets for details and can apply for tickets starting on Sept. 23. All application windows will close on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. ET.
