The two powerhouse CONCACAF sides will meet in Vancouver and in the United States in a two-game friendly series later in the year

The United States women's national team and rival Canada will face off twice in November, with each country hosting one match in the two-game set. 

The two teams last met in 2016, with the USA taking a 2-0 win in the CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Championship final to claim the top spot in the region.

The U.S. owns a dominant record all-time against Canada, having posted a 47-3-6 mark in the series, but the Canadians have made a real rivalry of it in the last decade, most recently finishing ahead of the United States at the 2016 Rio Olympics with a bronze medal, while the USA was bounced in the quarterfinals. 

The match in Canada will be held at Vancouver's BC Place on Nov. 9, the first time the U.S. women have visited the stadium since winning the 2015 Women's World Cup at the venue. 

The two matches will mark the end of the playing calendar for the U.S. women for 2017, with the second match taking place on Nov. 12 at a location in the United States that has yet to be determined.
