United States to start World Cup qualifying in St. Louis on Nov. 13

The United States will open qualifying for the 2018 World Cup at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Baseball's St. Louis Cardinals announced on Sunday that their stadium will be used for the game on Nov. 13.

Given a bye in the first three rounds of qualifying along with the other powers of CONCACAF, the 34th-ranked United States was drawn into Group C on Saturday for the fourth round.

In addition to No. 64 Trinidad and Tobago, the group will include 105th-ranked Guatemala or No. 107 Antigua and Barbuda, and 135th-ranked Aruba or No. 115 St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Seeking their eighth straight World Cup appearance, the Americans start with a pair of games on Nov. 13 and 17.
