UPDATE: It’s now officially official.

Reports for the last month or so have been strongly hinting towards Colorado hosting the next home CONCACAF Hexagonal match for the USMNT. Now we have unofficial/official confirmation from the Denver Post that it’s happening.

The United States will host Trinidad & Tobago at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on June 8, the same venue that the infamous “Snow Classico” game happened in 2013 against Costa Rica. This will be the third time the U.S. has played at the home of the Colorado Rapids. They’ve won the previous two times.

The U.S. currently sit in fourth-place of the Hex standings after four matches. They’ll be huge favorites in this match as T&T have struggled on the field and have undergone some hardships off of it with their federation and coaching staff.

A formal announcement from U.S. Soccer is expected on Monday, according to the report.

What are your thoughts on this choice? Were you hoping for a different city?
