The Mexican National Team’s 60 million fans across the United States will have another opportunity to see their idols in person this summer as the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF) and Soccer United Marketing (SUM) today announced that Mexico will take on Panama on Wednesday, June 30, 8 p.m. CT, at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium – presented by Nissan. The match comes just days before the start of the region’s top national team competition, the Concacaf Gold Cup.

The Mexican National Team U.S. Tour will be making its second-ever MexTour stop at Nissan Stadium, in Nashville, home of Major League Soccer’s Nashville Soccer Club and the NFL’s Tennessee Titans. In 2016, Mexico defeated New Zealand 2-1 in front of a then state soccer record of 40,287. The venue has hosted two Concacaf Gold Cups and several international matches, including a 2018 game between the U.S. and Mexico. 

Mexico and Panama have played 21 all-time games, recording a record of 14 wins, two losses and five draws, with Mexico scoring 39 goals to Panama’s 14.  The two teams last met on November 15, 2019 in a Concacaf Nations League match, with Mexico winning 3-0.

Mexican National Team U.S. Tour matches have become one of the most popular events within the sport, with an average of approximately 60,000 fans per match in the last decade.  The Mexican National Team matches allow the team to prepare for important competitions like the FIFA World Cup and Concacaf Gold Cup and reach their fervent fan base across North America. A 2020 study by Equation Research identified 60 million fans of the Mexican National Team in the United States, contributing to the rising attendances and home team environment in cities throughout the country.

The Mexican National Team U.S. Tour, sponsored by adidas, Allstate, AT&T, Bud Light Seltzer, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Gran Centenario, Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Procter & Gamble, Nissan, The Home Depot, and Wells Fargo, will visit various cities across the United States in 2021 and be broadcast nationally on the Univision family of networks and Fútbol de Primera Radio Network.
