With a little more than three weeks to kickoff, tickets sales for USA-Spain on June 4 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., have now surpassed 50,000 sold and are heading towards setting a record in New England.
The largest attendance ever for a U.S. Soccer game in New England came April 20, 1997, when 57,407 witnessed the United States and Mexico duel to a 2-2 draw in World Cup qualifying. For a region with such a rich soccer tradition, the afternoon of June 4 could prove to be an historic occasion.
In less than two weeks, U.S. head coach Bob Bradley will announce the roster for both the Spain game and the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup. With the confederation championship on the line as well as a place in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil, he is expected to bring the strongest side possible.
