The United States Men’s National Team have announced two January friendlies in Los Angeles to kick-start their 2026 World Cup cycle.

LAFC’s Banc of California Stadium will host a match against Serbia on January 25, with the USMNT then facing Colombia at the LA Galaxy’s Dignity Health Sports Park three days later.

With the United States co-hosting the 2026 World Cup alongside Mexico and Canada, the three nations will not have to go through qualifying for the tournament. With that in mind, scheduling games against competitive nations will be important in order for Gregg Berhalter to gauge the talent at his disposal.

Warner Bros. Discovery Sports will exclusively present the two January friendlies, with distribution plans and kick-off times to be announced down the line.

Before then, however, the USMNT have the small matter of the 2022 World Cup to contend with, beginning their campaign against Wales on Monday, November 21. The Stars and Strips then face England four days later before concluding their Group B fixtures against Iran on November 29.
