TORONTO — Two of Canada‘s home matches in the CONCACAF Nations League will be played at Toronto’s BMO Field.

Canada’s men’s senior team will host Cuba on Sept. 6 and the United States on Oct. 15, Soccer Canada announced on Thursday.

The two home matches are part of a four-match series that features an away match against Cuba on Sept. 10 and a game in the U.S. on Nov. 15.

It will be the first time Canada has hosted the United States in a competitive match since 1997.

The two sides have since faced each other four times in the CONCACAF Gold Cup including the 2007 semifinals.

In 2012 and 2013, the two sides played to 0-0 draws in each nation’s respective centennial match.

Canada most recently hosted Cuba in 2012 as part of a home-and-away set during the group stage of FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Canada won the first match away 1-0 and the second match 3-0 at home.
