When I walked up to the new FC Tucson stadium on the northwest corner of the Kino Sports Complex at Country Club and Ajo, the first thing that crossed my mind was "Wait, this got built in Tucson?" It's a really smartly built space, with a great looking field, a plaza with plenty of places to grab a beer, a barbecue ready to crank out brats and Sonoran dogs, and covered bleachers with a great sound system that seem set up to create a loud and fun atmosphere. It's a really great place to see a soccer match and one that's perfectly sized (2,500) for where the game is at here in Tucson.
So, you should go see FC Tucson play MLS team Chivas USA tonight. Tickets are affordable enough ($12-$18) and you'll have a good time. We've managed to run every other non-high school/college sporting entity out of town, it might be worth giving this one a little extra love.
