The United States men’s national team has been drawn into a group with Canada, Cuba and Panama for CONCACAF Olympic qualifying.

The U.S. will be in Group A and open with two games at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas, against Canada on Oct. 1 and Cuba on Oct. 3. The team concludes group play against Panama in Commerce City, Colorado, on Oct. 6.

Group B includes Mexico, Honduras, Haiti and the winner of the UNCAF playoff between Costa Rica and Guatemala. The top two finishers from Groups A and B will advance to the semifinals in Sandy, Utah, on Oct. 10.

The semifinal winners advance to the Oct. 13 final in Sandy and qualify for the 2016 Olympics.

The qualifying tournament is an under-23 competition. Mexico won the event in 2012, while the U.S. was eliminated during the group stage of qualifying.
