NEXT STOP, CUBA? USSF MEN'S SOCCER TEAM SEEKING GAME IN '00
Published August 20, 1999
USSF officials "initiated discussions" with Cuban soccer officials last week "in an attempt to arrange" a match between the U.S. men's team and the Cuban team in Havana, according to Seth Wickersham of the WASHINGTON POST. USSF Dir of Communications Jim Moorhouse said discussions are "very preliminary" for a summer 2000 game. Wickersham notes that a U.S. nat'l team "hasn't played" in Cuba since '47 (WASH. POST, 8/20). The AP reported that former MLS Commissioner Doug Logan was "acting on behalf" of the USSF and "hand delivered" a letter yesterday to Cuban Football General Secretary Luis Hernandez "requesting" a two-game friendly series. Logan said by phone: "Not only was it warmly received, we've picked a day -- July 19" (AP, 8/19).
