NEW YORK & MEXICO CITY – The Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF) and Soccer United Marketing (SUM) today announced that the recently crowned 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup Champion Mexican Men's National Team will play four matches in the United States this Fall as part of the 20th anniversary of the MexTour, including a much-anticipated battle against four-time FIFA World Cup champion Germany on Tuesday, October 17 at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. All four games will be staged during two FIFA windows, allowing for the teams to call up their top squads.
The Fall matches kickoff on Saturday, September 9, at Arlington's AT&T Stadium in North Texas, with Mexico taking on 2022 FIFA World Cup participant Australia. Presented by AT&T, the match is part of a multi-year partnership with the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, FC Dallas, and the Dallas Sports Commission, which runs through 2026 when AT&T Stadium will host 2026 FIFA World Cup matches.
The MexTour continues Tuesday, September 1, with Mexico's first-ever match against Uzbekistan at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, also a 2026 FIFA World Cup host venue.
On Saturday, October 14, Mexico will line up against African powerhouse Ghana at a venue to be announced, followed three days later by a marquee match against Germany in Philadelphia.
