Gillette Stadium will host the U.S. Men’s National Team’s Gold Cup clash against Haiti at 8:30pm on Jul. 10 as part of a soccer doubleheader at the Revolution’s home grounds.

The U.S.-Haiti match will be preceded by a 6:30pm contest between Panama and the winner of the two-game playoff series between French Guiana and Honduras on March 25 and 29.

The second match of the evening will mark the first time that the U.S. has played a Gold Cup match in Foxborough since the 2009 tournament and, incidentally, also played Haiti. Revolution coach Jay Heaps and striker Charlie Davies, as did ex-Revolution center back Michael Parkhust, suited up for the U.S. in that contest, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

This will be the fifth time that Gillette Stadium has hosted the Gold Cup since the stadium opened in 2002, having previously hosted a total of 18 matches in the 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009 editions of the tournament.

The U.S. National Team game will also be the first time the team plays in Foxborough since a June 2011 friendly against Spain – which ended in a humbling 4-0 defeat – and the first time that they will do so under the direction of Jurgen Klinsmann.

As defending champion from the 2013 event, a win this summer would guarantee the United States as the CONCACAF representative in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia. Otherwise, the U.S. would face the 2015 winner in a playoff. The format and schedule will be announced in the future.
