The U.S. Under-23 men's national team is just over a week away from opening its Olympic qualifying campaign, and it will prepare for that with a game against the Atlanta Silverbacks.

Caleb Porter's side will take on Atlanta in a closed-door scrimmage on March 18 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., the SIlverbacks announced on Tuesday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. CDT.

The United States is no stranger to playing NASL clubs. Last month, the Americans defeated the San Antonio Scorpions, 3-0, in a scrimmage.

The U.S. team begins its Olympic qualifying campaign on March 22 with a game versus Cuba.
