USMNT learns revised 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Schedule

On Friday, Concacaf confirmed the updated schedule for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The new calendar includes a number of international windows extended by an additional day to allow for three matches to be played.

The original qualifying schedule was published following the official draw in August, but the competition was postponed due to the ongoing global health pandemic. For the final round, four of the five international windows will be packed with three matches each, making the qualifying road even more challenging.

While the schedule shifted, the sequence of opponents - which was determined for each nation during the draw - remained the same.
