MIDSUMMER CLASSIC?: In N.Y., George Vecsey noted summer exhibition matches in the U.S. featuring European football clubs are "fast becoming a midsummer ritual." It is "hard to take a midsummer soccer match seriously when the lads have just come back from those brief vacations from a sport that grinds bodies and minds down to nubs." But data from SeatGeek indicated that tickets "were going for an average of $110, with seats atop the scoreboard going for more than $400 and standing room at $70." U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati "speaks about 'signals' of soccer's incremental rise." It is "all a work in progress," but the summer tour "is here to stay" (N.Y. TIMES, 7/26).
