It’s the third time that Talen Energy Stadium has hosted the USMNT as well as being a host for numerous U.S. Women’s National Team matches.

The USMNT will play in one match during the March FIFA international dates, with a friendly agianst Paraguay set to take place on March 27 in Cary N.C. After that, the U.S. faces Bolivia before flying abroad to face the Republic of Ireland in Dublin and France in Lyon in June. Then the U.S. will head home for a rare quiet summer.

“With the addition of the Bolivia game, we have a great set of experiences on the table for our young players this summer,” U.S. head coach Dave Sarachan said in a statement. “Bolivia presents different challenges than Ireland and France. We’re thrilled to be starting the tour in Philadelphia, one of the great soccer communities in the United States and a fan base that has always supported the National Team.”
