Crowd Of 50,000-Plus Expected For U.S.-Mexico Match In Arizona
More than 50,000 fans are expected to attend tonight's U.S.-Mexico friendly at Univ. of Phoenix Stadium in an event that "will serve as an unofficial local kickoff to a World Cup summer." While it is "not unusual for national teams of this caliber to attract large crowds," what is new is the match attracting "serious attention from the crowded American sports market" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 4/2). The 63,400-seat venue is "expected to fill up" with "mostly with pro-Mexican fans" (FOXSPORTS.com, 4/2).
