WCQ FInal Four venues collage

As announced earlier today by U.S. Soccer and posted on TOW, the U.S. Men’s National Team’s four remaining home 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying matches will be played in Seattle, SLC, Columbus and Kansas City. The U.S., which kicks off its home stand in World Cup Qualifying tomorrow night against Costa Rica at sold-out Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo., will host the other four Final Round opponents in the following venues:

June 11 against Panama at CenturyLink Field (Seattle, Wash.)

June 18 against Honduras at Rio Tinto Stadium (Sandy, Utah)

Sept. 10 against Mexico at Columbus Crew Stadium (Columbus, Ohio)

Oct. 11 against Jamaica at Sporting Park (Kansas City, Kan.)

Hit the jump for the latest addition to the TOW Social Soccer series where we get social with it and take a look at what is out there on the interwebs to have a deeper look into the culture of soccer in America. With this announcement we decided to find some stuff that gives you a better feel of each of these venues. Wikipedia stuff, youtube stuff, some pictures from Instagram and Google Earth, theres a pretty good look at these stadiums after the jump…. as the games draw closer, we will be throwing up some TOW official places that you need to hit in each of these cities.

If you check us out on instagram or twitter, you know we like to get out and get our #BumpyPitchSocialClub activity on, so we are going to extend that a little bit to TOW.

Hit the jump to get a closer look at the four venues choses for WCQ play…..

The June 11 match against Panama at CenturyLink will be only the second World Cup Qualifying game in Seattle. The first was more than 35 years ago when the U.S. defeated Canada on Oct. 20, 1976. The last time the USA played at CenturyLink (formerly known as Qwest Field) was on July 4, 2009, during a 4-0 victory against Grenada in the opener of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The USA is 6-2-1 all-time in the state of Washington and has won five straight.
