Your chance to buy tickets to one of the most anticipated soccer matches in Cincinnati likely is over.
The United States Men’s National Soccer Team will battle Mexico at TQL Stadium in Cincinnati's West End next week in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying match. Unfortunately, fans who hadn't yet bought tickets may be out of luck, as U.S. Soccer announced this week that the game is now sold out. In a release, U.S. Soccer notes that fans from every state in the country as well as Washington D.C. have purchased tickets.
The qualifying match was announced at the end of July. At that time, Carl Lindner III, the majority owner of FC Cincinnati, said the USA/Mexico match would be ">one of the most significant soccer matches in the world."
In October, Cincinnati welcomed FIFA and U.S. Soccer as officials toured Paul Brown Stadium, soccer training facilities and Fan Fest locations. Cincinnati is one of 17 U.S. cities vying to host a 2026 World Cup match. Officials expect that 10-11 cities will be chosen in early 2022.
The match between the USMNT and Mexico will kick off at 9:10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12, at TQL Stadium.
