StubHub Center has been a frequent host for MNT matches at the end of the annual January camp, with the test against Bosnia and Herzegovina marking the 12th time these games have been played in Carson since 2004. Acting U.S. Men's National Team head coach Dave Sarachan has called 30 players for the USA's annual January Camp.

Overall, the U.S. holds an 11-2-2 record at the venue, including eight shutouts. Numerous players have received their first caps in past outings there, with the likes of Kellyn Acosta, Alejandro Bedoya, Kyle Beckerman, Chris Wondolowski, and DeAndre Yedlin all earning their debut at this stadium.

The teams have met once since the Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed in 1992. A hat trick by Jozy Altidore and the debut appearances of John Brooks and Bobby Wood highlighted the USA's 4-3 victory on Aug. 14, 2013, in Sarajevo.
