The United States and Mexico will slug it out in the 2023/24 Concacaf Nations League Final on March 24 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. The match will start at 9:15 pm ET (8:15 pm CT/local), according to a media release by Concacaf, the official governing body representing national soccer associations from North and Central America and the Caribbean.

The United States qualified for the Final with a 3-1 win over Jamaica. The Caribbean side was on the verge of securing a place in Sunday’s Final, but an own goal deep in second-half stoppage time forced extra time, in which the reigning champions pulled through with two goals from FW Haji Wright, the release adds, while noting that Mexico recorded a goal feast in the penultimate game.

“A 3-0 win over Panama, including two goals in the first half from Edson Alvarez and Julian Quinones, plus a second-half strike from Orbelin Pineda, propelled Mexico to their second-ever trip to the Final of the Concacaf Nations League.

These decisive matches are part of an exciting week of Concacaf men’s national team football in the Dallas Metropolitan Area, which also includes the 2023/24 Concacaf Nations League Play-In at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, TX, on Saturday, March 23.

The CNL Play-In will see Canada face off against Trinidad and Tobago, followed by a Central American matchup between Costa Rica and Honduras. The winner in each matchup will qualify for the 2024 CONMEBOL Copa America, joining the Concacaf Nations League Semifinalists (Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, and the United States) for a total of six Concacaf guest national teams in this summer’s tournament.

Sunday’s Final will crown the tournament’s third champion after the United States won the first two editions (2021 in Denver, CO, and 2023 in Las Vegas, NV). The losing semifinalists, Jamaica and Panama, will play the Third Place Match at 6:00 pm ET (5:00 pm CT/local).”
