thumbnail Hello,

The match will be the first time the two teams play each other outside South America.

CitiField will host a third soccer match in two years and this time two South American national teams will square off in one of the most soccer friendly boroughs in New York.

Ecuador is currently fourth in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying and Chile sits in the top spot. The last time these two teams played each other Chile earned a 1-0. The game in Flushing will be the 44th meeting between the two and the record favors Chile (25-6-12).

Ecuador was part of the first soccer match ever at CitiField (June 7, 2011) against Greece. That day, officials reported an attendance of 39,656.

This match will be the first time Chile and Ecuador play each other outside of South America.
