It’ll cap a three-game stretch of frigid games for the USMNT. On Jan. 27 USMNT will face El Salvador in Field in Columbus, Ohio and will then play in an away match against Canada. Then, the team heads to St. Paul’s open air soccer stadium.

“World. Cup. Qualifier,” Minnesota United tweeted, announcing the news. “Yes, February 2 in Saint Paul.”

For some perspective on how cold it might be, the average high temperature for Feb. 2 in Minnesota is 24.6 degrees — and the low average temperature is 8 degrees.

“As we have seen throughout the qualifying process so far, great stadiums and great atmospheres provide a huge advantage to our team,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said. “We’ve had fantastic experiences in Columbus and the Twin Cities and look forward to continuing our World Cup Qualifying campaign in front of our fans.”

Due to high demand, U.S. Soccer will be using a weighted random draw for tickets. Information on that is here.

Allianz Field has become a national soccer destination, recently hosting Carli Lloyd’s final home game for the U.S. women’s national team.
