The United States Soccer Federation announced that the USMNT final group match of the Concacaf Nations League will no longer be played in Havana, Cuba as scheduled. The game, set for November 19th, will now take place at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex; George Town, Cayman Islands according to US Soccer.

Cuba’s national stadium is undergoing construction and will be unavailable for the date the match is scheduled. The match may prove pivotal for where the team ends up in the group as it will open against Cuba in Washington, DC on October 11 then face Canada in Toronto on the 15th. The second leg of group play will see the US again face the Canadians in a site to be determined in the USA before taking on Cuba.

The US has played in Cuba three other times, but a fourth trip to the island nation was not in the works for the tournament.
