The United States is set to return to RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. in a match that has been 15 years in the making.

On Wednesday, the United States Soccer Federation announced that the nation’s capital will host a September 4th friendly against Peru. These two sides last squared off on February 16th, 2000 in Miami. The encounter finished 1-0 in favor of the Americans.

Peru comes into the match with a ton of momentum after a third place finish in the 2015 Copa America. The United States, meanwhile, is currently set in Gold Cup competition, emerging winners of their group stage match against Honduras this week.

September’s match will mark the sixth meeting between the two countries. The United States has the edge in the all time series, going 2-2-1 in the previous five games.

The U.S. Men’s National Team returns to RFK Stadium for the 23rd time. That’s more than any other venue in the world. Not only have they hosted more matches than any venue at RFK, but the Americans have a 14-3-5 record at the home of DC United in their previous 22 matches.

The match will take place at 7 pm on September 4th, and can be seen on Fox Sports 1 and UniMas.
