Two MLS Teams To Be Featured In New Pacific Rim Cup In Honolulu
Two MLS clubs will face off with two teams from the Japanese Professional Football League -- or J.League -- at a new tournament in Honolulu in February. The event, called the Pacific Rim Cup, will feature the Crew and Whitecaps. It is somewhat of a revival of the ’08 Pan-Pacific Championship, an event also held between J.League and MLS clubs. Blue United Corporation, the host origination for the event, says the goal is to make the tournament an annual event. DOME Corp., the exclusive partner of Under Armour in Japan, is the title sponsor of the event.
