Concacaf used this Monday to drop big news, announcing the format for World Cup qualifying. The United States Men’s National Team now knows its road to Qatar! On Episode 18, we discuss the format, the windows that will be used for qualifying matches, how it will all take shape, and when the USMNT will begin play. We also know who will join us in the final round. Who else has a good shot of rounding out the Ocho/Octagon/Eight?

After the break, Concacaf also announces the dates for the Nations League finals, the 2021 Gold Cup, and the 2022-23 Nations League. We break down those dates and put together the basic schedule for the USMNT. Bottom line, the meaningful matches begin next year starting in March, so let’s get ready now!

We hope to be back with another episode later in the week. Want to make sure you don’t miss the action? Subscribe wherever you find your podcasts. If you have questions, hit us up at
