USA vs Mexico Comes to Denver, Colorado
The Arena Soccer National Teams of USA (USNAST) and Mexico will bring the fast-moving, high scoring game of Arena Soccer to Denver, Colorado as part of their 2107 Summer Tour on Saturday, September 23, 2017 as preparations continue for both teams for the World Minifootball Federation World Cup this October in Tunisia.
USA will take on Mexico in the game, set to kickoff at 7 p.m. at the Denver Coliseum. Doors for the game will open at 6 p.m. Tickets, starting at $13, are on sale at the box office and online at axs.com.
The game will be presented by the Colorado Blizzard, who look to bring Pro Arena Soccer to the Coliseum in the near future.
“Some of the best players in North America are coming to Denver to showcase the game of Arena Soccer,” said Bernie Lilavois, the general manager of the USNAST. “We want to thank the Denver Coliseum and the Colorado Blizzard for hosting this game and hope that fans will come and check out what arena soccer is all about and support the Blizzard in the future.”
Arena soccer is played much like ice hockey, on a surface the size of a hockey rink, with six players on the field at the same time. Players are able to substitute during the run of play, with certain penalties resulting in man advantage situations. Scoring is increased on the smaller surface, with games featuring 20 or more total goals scored between the two teams.
Rosters for the game will be announced in the upcoming weeks. More information on the USNAST and the game can be found online at usnast.com
