Pasadena will be packed Saturday, specifically the Rose Bowl. An estimated 90,000 fans will crowd the stadium for the sold-out CONCACAF soccer game between the United States and Mexico.
There's been debate as to which team will have a stronger fanbase. Ticketholders had to win a lottery to even get a chance to go to the game. And when they entered the lottery, they had to choose their allegiance: Mexico, U.S.A. or just Soccer.
Ticket prices at face value ranged from $49 to $300, according to the Washington Post.
“This is one of the biggest soccer games to be played on North American soil since the 1994 World Cup, and the fans have certainly responded,” said CONCACAF acting general secretary Ted Howard in a press release Monday. “Whether you are in the stadium, or watching on television, we are looking forward to bringing fans a truly historic sporting event.”
The game will be televised in the U.S. by Univision/UDN in Spanish and Fox Sports 1 in English. You can find team rosters here. If you're going to the game, you can find a list of transportation tips here.
The winner of Saturday's game will go on to compete in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
