I just checked on tickets. It's now AC Milan vs Liverpool. Lower level seats are at least 85 bucks each.

Went to see Spurs vs. Liverpool in Baltimore two years ago.

Even as a "friendly" it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. YNWA played over the speakers just before the second half, and the 80% red crowd didn't know it. The Spurs end actually sang it for them... Brad Friedel damned near doubled over in laughter.

HotRod is putting together a tailgate event on FB for this game.  Will be super cool to have a big contingent of Niners tailgating for this.  Will post the details here.

I went to Real Madrid vs. AS Roma in Dallas last night.  Attendance was solid (~57,500) and it was really cool seeing guys like Bale, Modric, Ramos, Pepe, Casillas, Totti & Ashley Cole in the flesh.

The Cotton Bowl is an absolute dump though.  They were understaffed in everything from parking attendants to concession workers to security (like 15-20 people rushed the field with 5 minutes left while fat cops attempted to stop them). 

Roma won 1-0, Totti scored.

I'll be there. Not sure I've spent more than $50 on a sporting event ticket before and literally not cared who will win or lose. I just hope there isn't a tie because that and the constant whining for calls is why I'm not a big soccer fan besides for the World Cup. I've never been to a pro match so figured it would be an experience.

Who is the underdog?

The rules for this pre-season competition (the International Champions Cup) do not allow ties.  If they are still tied after 90 minutes, the two teams go straight to a penalty shoot-out to break the tie.


Liverpool will be the favorites.  These are two of the most storied clubs in the history of European soccer.  Between them they have won the Champions League (the most prestigious club soccer competition in Europe) a combined 12 times (5 Liverpool, 7 Milan).  Liverpool are on the upswing and Milan are in one of the worst periods in the club's history.  Their owner has been dealing with legal issues in Italy and they have not spent the money necessary to stay competitive.

Is anyone watching the Liverpool Manchester United game from Miami?  The attendance is pathetic. I can't believe they are going to out an MLS team there. Such a bad move.

It looked like the entire upper deck was empty.

Announced attendance was around 51k.


That's a pathetic turnout for two huge teams. Can't believe MLS is giving Miami another shot.

Yes. This Miami deal really worries me. I love MLS and I want them to succeed. But Miami is not the way to go. There is no grass roots love of soccer there. They would be much smarter to force Beckham to build in another market. He'll let him buy chivas, move it downtown and rebrand. St. Louis, Minneapolis, Raleigh would all be better markets for MLS than Miami.  This might be their first big misstep in the last 10 years.

I'm also unsure about the 2nd NY team, but it seems to be building some excitement so far. Just wonder if that will come at the expense of the red bulls. But I am sure that, as you say, Miami does not support teams well, particularly when the teams struggle as a new team could for quite a while. Contracting a miami team again will not help the league's image much at all.

Would think a team in St. Louis would make all kinds of sense, partly because markets that lack one of the bigger sports seem to be supporting teams more enthusiastically (Seattle, Portland, the Canadian teams) and St. Louis has a history of soccer enthusiasm.
