UPDATE: U.S. Soccer has officially confirmed the Panama match will be hosted by Orlando. ESPN will televise it with kickoff TBD.

The United States men’s national team have just six CONCACAF Hexagonal matches remaining, three of which are at home. We now know where they will likely be played. In addition to the already known Trinidad & Tobago match at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in June, Grant Wahl revealed on Fox Sports 1’s UEFA Champions League pre-game coverage that Orlando and New Jersey will host the final two home qualifiers.

According to Wahl, Red Bull Arena will play host to the United States’ qualifier against Costa Rica on Sept. 1. This will be the fourth time the USMNT has played at the Red Bulls’ stadium.

After that match, Orlando’s brand new soccer specific stadium, Orlando City Stadium, will host the Oct. 6 qualifier between the U.S. and Panama, which will be the team’s penultimate Hexagonal match.

This appears to be the remaining home Hex schedule: Denver/Commerce City (June 9), New Jersey, Orlando.

What do you think about the choices for these two qualifiers? Which cities were snubbed?
