The United States men’s national team will kick off their 2017 schedule with two friendlies to conclude their annual month-long January training camp. The first match of the year will be in San Diego against Serbia on January 29th. It was announced on Tuesday that the second friendly will come against Jamaica in Chattanooga, Tennessee at Finley Stadium on February 3rd.

Jamaica failed to make the CONCACAF Hexagonal, but should offer a good test for the USA as they prepare for their remaining Hex games. The match will be televised on FS1 and UniMas and will kickoff at 3pm.

While Chattanooga compete in the fourth-division in the NPSL, they are known for their boisterous crowds of over 15,000 on a consistent basis. The stadium is said to have a capacity of over 20,000. That will surely be tested as the USMNT comes to town.

In August 2015, Chattanooga broke the record for attendance at a U.S. amateur soccer match as the Cosmos B team beat CFC in the NPSL National Championship.
