The United States Men’s National Team will play Jamaica on February 3rd at Finley Stadium in Chattanooga. The match will be aired at 7 p.m. ET live on Fox Sports 1 and UniMas.

This will be the first time the United States Men’s National Team will play in Chattanooga, Tennesse. Finley Stadium is located at the University of Tennesse at Chattanooga which also serves as the home stadium for Chattanooga FC.

U.S. Head Coach Bruce Arena applauded the location decision, stating that the atmosphere in Chattanooga will be a boon to the home side.

“It’s important that fans across the country have an opportunity to see the National Team, and we are always looking for places that have shown great support for the sport,’ said Arena. “From what we have seen, everything that’s happened in Chattanooga is remarkable. We’re looking forward to a fantastic atmosphere.”

This will be the second match for the U.S. this year, following a January 29th encounter against Serbia at Qualcomm Stadium. It will also be the second match to feature the returning Bruce Arena on the touchline for the MNT.
