[DATEBOOK] The USA will host Ecuador on Oct. 10 in East Hartford, Connecticut, in its first home match since the 2014 World Cup. The match will be the 12th in the series with Ecuador, which also participated in the 2014 World Cup, its third trip to the finals in the last four tournaments.

Kickoff at Rentschler Field is set for 7 p.m. ET, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN, WatchESPN, UniMas and ESPN Deportes Radio.

Plans for a match against Colombia Sept. 9 in San Antonio, Texas, fell through. It is anticipated that the USA will play a match on Oct. 14, the second of the two FIFA fixture dates in October.

Away matches against the Czech Republic on Sept. 5 in Prague and Ireland on Nov. 18 in Dublin have already been scheduled.

"We are really excited to get our first chance to play at home after the World Cup," said U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann in a statement. "The support from our fans in the United States and everyone that traveled to Brazil was awesome, and we want to build on that energy. We have an exciting four years ahead of us, and this is just the beginning. The U.S. team has a great history at Rentschler Field, so we are hoping for another big crowd against Ecuador."

The match will be the fifth at Rentschler Field. The USA most recently beat Costa Rica, 1-0, there at the 2013 Gold Cup.

The United States has a 2-5-4 all-time record against Ecuador in a series dating back to 1984. The USA's victories came in friendlies in 2002 and 2007. The 1-0 win in 2002 in Birmingham, Alabama, saw U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard earn his first cap and first shutout.
