A special 90-minute pregame show on FS1 begins at 8:00 PM ET, live from two sets at what is expected to be a raucous, sold-out Rose Bowl. Rob Stone hosts, with analysis from a team of accomplished former world-class players including U.S. Soccer Hall of Famers Alexi Lalas and Eric Wynalda; future Hall of Famer Landon Donovan; former Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel; former Mexican national Mariano Trujillo; reporter Julie Stewart-Binks; and Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl.

On the Spanish-language side, FOX Deportes will feature special segments live from the Rose Bowl on its flagship soccer program LA ULTIMA PALABRA with former Mexican National team captain Alberto Garcia Aspe while Ruben Rodriguez provides up-to-the minute information for CENTRAL FOX, the leading sports news show. FOX DEPORTES EN VIVO, the network's news magazine show will broadcast a special show from outside the stadium prior to the match.

Two years ago, CONCACAF split the region's berth to the Confederations Cup between two editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, assuring that both editions in a four-year cycle have the same importance from a competitive perspective. The USMNT qualified for the CONCACAF CUP with its 2013 Gold Cup championship, while Mexico was able to capture the tournament this summer to set up next month's showdown in Pasadena.
