U.S. men's spring schedule includes Mexico clash (updated)

The U.S. men's national team will play seven games -- including a home game against Mexico -- in the first six months of 2015 leading up to the 2015 Gold Cup. U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati revealed the federation's short-term plans for the program at a media roundtable held after MLS Cup 2014 on Sunday night.

2015 Men's Schedule (Updated):
Jan. 28: at Chile, Fox Sports 2, UniMas, UDN
Feb. 8: Panama (in Carson, Calif.), ESPN Network, UniMas, UDN
March 25: at Denmark, ESPN Network, UniMas, UDN
March 31: at Switzerland (in Zurich), Fox Sports 1, UniMas, UDN
April 15: Mexico, Fox Sports 1, UniMas, UDN
June 5: at Netherlands, ESPN Network, UniMas, UDN
June 10: at Germany (in Cologne), Fox Sports 1, UniMas, UDN

Note: Updated with TV carriers and three venues.

The first two matches of the year against Chile and at home against Panama will follow the annual January camp. Like the Mexico friendly, the matches will fall outside FIFA windows so clubs aren't obliged to release players to the national team.

The other four matches all fall during FIFA windows and will take place in Europe. The June matches will come a month ahead of the Gold Cup scheduled to kick off July 7 in the United States.

No matches for the second half of the season were announced. If a team other than the USA wins the Gold Cup, a playoff between the USA, the 2013 winner, and the 2015 champion will take place during the fall as a single match.

There are again three FIFA windows in the fall. MLS has not yet released its schedule so it is not known if it plans on scheduling regular-season matches during those windows like it did in 2014.
