Cymru to play USA at Liberty Stadium to kickstart November International Window

Cymru’s senior men’s team are to face the USA at Liberty Stadium next month, re-arranging the fixture that was cancelled in March due to the pandemic.

Ryan Giggs’ squad will take on the Americans on Thursday 12 November, ahead of their final two UEFA Nations League Group B4 fixtures against Republic of Ireland on Sunday 15 November and Finland on Wednesday 18 November at Cardiff City Stadium.

Cymru’s Remaining 2020 Fixtures

Cymru v USA

  • Thursday 12 November (19:45 KO)

Cymru v Republic of Ireland 

  • Sunday 15 November (17:00 KO)

Cymru v Finland 

  • Wednesday 18 November (19:45 KO)

This will be only the second meeting between the nations and the first on Welsh soil. The previous encounter took place in 2003 at Spartan Stadium in San Jose under Mark Hughes’ tenure, which ended in a 2-0 defeat.

In June, the FIFA Council approved for this year’s October and November international windows to be extended to allow all UEFA nations to play three games to cover for the postponement of fixtures in March owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With all fixtures scheduled to be played behind-closed-doors for the foreseeable future, the FAW will continue to adhere to Government guidelines and liaise with relevant authorities. Supporters will be notified should arrangements change and tickets become available.
