Next year, the U.S. will play Mexico on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m., Mexico clash with Japan on Oct. 14 at 3 p.m., and the U.S. go up to battle up against Japan on Oct. 17 at 8 p.m.

Friendlies are exhibition matches where they don’t count for anything, but are played to gain more playing and learning experience before they enter into more serious games/tournaments.

For the first time in 16 years, the United States U-23’s qualified for a Olympics Men’s Tournament, Mexico missed out, and Japan are preparing for the 2024 Asian Cup in Qatar, which could see them qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Starting this Friday, Rising season ticket holders will be able to buy tickets first this Friday, Sept. 29th, at 10 a.m.

As for the public, an on-sale starts Saturday, Sept. 30, at 10 a.m.

Phoenix Rising FC Stadium is located at 38th St. and Washington St.
