The U.S. men's national team is heading back to Columbus.

U.S. Soccer announced that Crew Stadium will host the national team's World Cup qualifier against Jamaica on Sept. 11, the second qualifier against the Reggae Boyz in a five-day stretch. The national team was last in Columbus in 2009 — a 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Mexico — and is 5-0-3 there all-time.

"Playing a World Cup qualifier in Columbus makes perfect sense, from the quality of the venue to the amazing history the U.S. team has at Columbus Crew Stadium," U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a statement.

The match will be the fourth of six qualifying matches in the semifinal round and the second home match. The opening match against Antigua and Barbuda on June 8 will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. The venue for the Oct. 16 match against Guatemala has not yet been announced.
