    ****ty stadium and they play way too often and actually cheapen the rivalry.

    Non-Fifa date so no Euros, just a stupid idea and fixture. Bold in your face money grab that I won't be a part of. Partido morelo...

    What does "non-fifa" date mean?

    All leagues hold no matches during official FIFA dates, so all players are available to be called in for international duty.

    it means clubs are not required to release players which traditionally has meant that euro clubs don't release internationals. so coaches usually have to field a locally based squad in these type of games.

    Or rather, to clarify, even if a league does have matches scheduled during FIFA dates, the club can NOT refuse to release their player for international duty.

    Oh yeah, that's why they usually try to put these games up north. Hope the American Outlaws come to represent.

    :grin: ALL games except in Seattle and Columbus are "away" U.S. and A. games.

    I guess those cities are only considered for games with all the stars on FIFA dates. :eek:

    1)Middle of the week
    2)People thinking about TAX day
    3)No internationals for either
    Yeap, this will be a low-attendance game... and I more than likely won't go.

    I'll have a sack full of reprobates 20 rows up around midfield.

    What is the pre-game/post-game bar?

    Shoot this thing will sell out no problem. Middle of the week means nothing for SA people, especially with Fiesta happening... This match will basically kick off Fiesta as the party starts that Saturday. The city shuts down to party for a week. You have too many fans on the Frontera that don't care about non-Euros playing.

    :rolleyes: Fine. I'll bite, bigtexxx
    Wait, who's talking about teams?

    Oops, sorry, didn't mean to bring up the fact that finishing with the most points in this region got you NOTHING. Must suck to be 2-game losers and ranked lower than your rival in The Cup, no, tex? :grin:
