During the team's procession to the pitch and for the singing of the U.S. National Anthem, flags from all Hispanic countries will be held on the pitch by individuals representing each country.
Several stadium announcements including the Starting XI will be made in Spanish, while DJ Leek will play Hispanic-themed warm-up and halftime music.
