[May 28 at Soldier Field in Chicago, Live at 2 p.m. CT on ESPN]
A stern reminder about an upcoming U.S. Soccer-related event, whether you plan to check it out live and in person, on the “telly” or that wacky world wide web.
The British are coming! The British are coming!
That’s right, our friends from across the Atlantic that speak the same language (close, at least) are coming to the good ‘ole U-S-of-A to take on the Men’s National Team at Soldier Field in Chicago.
What does that mean? Well, besides seeing a number of rental cars driving on the left side of the road, a few more patrons at your local “pub” and the high school cashier at Subway getting confused as to why so many people keep telling him in a weird accent, “I wanted chips, not chips,” it means U.S. Soccer fans will get to see some of the best soccer players in the world live in action (and hear REAL english accents), instead of on Fox Soccer Channel.
The Memorial Weekend match-up kicks off at 2 p.m. CT and over 35,000 tickets have already been sold. Of course if you can’t get to see the match in person, you can catch it live on ESPN and Telemundo. The U.S. has only won once out of the five previous matches, so come out and cheer on the U.S. as two 2002 World Cup quarterfinalists battle it out on our soil.
Tickets range in price from $28 to $95 are available to the general public through ussoccer.com, by phone at 312-559-1212 and at all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout Chicagoland (including Carson Pirie Scott, Coconuts, Hot Tix, FYE, Tower Records, and Ritmo Latino stores). Groups of 20 or more can call U.S. Soccer at 312-528-1290 or obtain a group order form at ussoccer.com.
