[HEXAGONAL] The second U.S. home game of final round World Cup qualifying will take place at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn., April 1. The match against Trinidad & Tobago will be the USA's third of the Hexagonal, following its Feb. 11 clash with Mexico and its March 28 game at El Salvador.

LP Field, which has a capacity of 68,798, is home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans and Tennessee State University football.

The men's U.S. full national team has played once before in Nashville, a 2006 World Cup preparation game against Morocco that drew 26,141.

Last April, the venue hosted the knockout round of the Concacaf Olympic Qualifying tournament, where the U.S. U-23 men defeated Canada in the semifinals to become one of two teams from the region to qualify for Beijing.
