You remember how excited you were about the World Cup? Went to a bar in the middle of the day to watch matches, pretended that you understood the offside rules? A bunch of the members of the US National Team (Clint Dempsey, Jermaine Jones, Graham Zusi, Matt Besler, Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando) are coming to town as part of the fourth annual Desert Diamond Cup from Wednesday, Feb. 18 to Saturday, Feb. 28. This year, the Colorado Rapids, Montreal Impact, New England Revolution, Real Salt Lake, Seattle Sounders and (at least for awhile) the reigning MLS champions Sporting Kansas City will be playing preseason matches at the fields of Kino North Stadium.
General admission tickets will be $18, allowing the lucky soccer fan to see three matches in one night. More info at fctucson.com.
