DENVER — Colorado will play host to Trinidad and Tobago vs the U.S. Men's National Team as the next qualifying match for the World Cup in June, U.S. Soccer officials announced on Monday. 

The match is set for 5:50 p.m. MT, and will be played at Dick's Sporting Goods Park — a familiar sight for many on the team, including Tim Howard. 

Thin air in Colorado is often cited as an advantage to Colorado athletes, like the Denver Broncos, and the U.S. men's team is expected to take advantage of the air against their competitors by setting to training at least a week ahead of the June 8 match. 

Tickets go on sale for the event on April 14 at 10 a.m. To order tickets on that date, visit this site
