CHICAGO (AP) — The U.S. soccer team will train at Stanford University in Stanford, Calif., ahead of the World Cup.

The Americans will start gathering there on May 14 and train at the Cagan Stadium soccer facility and Stanford Stadium, the university's football home.

"This is going to be the foundation of the World Cup," U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a video interview released Thursday by the U.S. Soccer Federation. "It's a dry climate. It's fresh air. We can add more sessions into that period than we usually would do."

Training sessions will not be open to the public.

Klinsmann must submit a 30-man preliminary roster to FIFA by May 13 and a final 23-man roster by June 2.
