Mexico will face Peru and Colombia in World Cup Sendoff Matches in California

The Mexican Men’s National Team is headed to the Golden State for two matches against top South American competition this September ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as part of the “MexTour Sendoff Series” that will also include fan and media-facing events such as Media Day, a fan appreciation day, and other festivities.

The Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF) and Soccer United Marketing (SUM) today announced that Mexico will take-on the national team of Peru on Saturday, September 24, at Pasadena’s legendary Rose Bowl – site of the 1994 Men’s and 1999 Women’s FIFA World Cup Finals. The Sendoff Series will continue in the Bay Area on Tuesday, September 27, when Mexico faces the Colombian National Team at Santa Clara’s Levi’s® Stadium, home of the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers and a venue for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. This will be the last opportunity for Mexico fans to see their team play in the U.S. prior to the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

FMF additionally announced today that Mexico will travel to Europe just prior to the World Cup to take-on Sweden on Wednesday, November 16, at Montilivi Stadium in Girona, Catalonia, Spain. Additional information about that match is available by visiting https://miseleccion.mx.
