The US U-23 Men's National Team kicks off the Concacaf Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship on Thursday, March 18 against Costa Rica.

As the U-23 team aim to qualify for their first Olympics since 2008, the qualifying tournament is finally set to kick off a year after it was originally scheduled and postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The delay has provided plenty of opportunity for growth for the U-23 squad and the USA enters the tournament riding the momentum of positive performances since the USMNT schedule resumed in November 2020.

After facing Costa Rica, the U-23 USMNT will take on Dominican Republic on Sunday, March 21 and finish the group stage versus Mexico on Wednesday, March 24.

The tournament will take place at two venues in the greater Guadalajara area, Estadio Jalisco in the city proper and Estadio Akron in Zapopan, Mexico. Due to the current conditions related to the global pandemic, the matches will be played with limited attendance.

The Concacaf qualifying tournament is open to all players born January 1, 1997 or after. The age-eligibility rules have carried over from the postponement, so some players on the U-23 USMNT are actually 24 years old.
