Puerto Rico USL MLS Challenge

Future USL Stars?Tomorrow in Estadio Juan Ramón Loubriel in Bayamón, the games begin for the Puerto Rico USL MLS Challenge. In the challenge teams from the United Soccer League and Major League Soccer will compete against each other. From the USL the Puerto Rico Islanders and the Rochester Raging Rhinos will play against the Los Angeles Galaxy and FC Dallas from the MLS. The games will continue on Saturday as well, with gates opening at 3:30 PM, $2.00 Coors Light before the first game at 5:00 PM and the last game at 8:00 PM.

This is the first time, Puerto Rico has hosted any type of major soccer event. I'll have to admit I've never seen a live soccer game. I'm not a real fan of soccer, but I have enjoyed following the last couple of World Cup competitions. I am pretty familiar with the neighbor's kid kicking a soccer ball against his house for hours at a time, and that doesn't seem to be too much fun to watch or listen to.

Tcikets for the event are available through Ticket Center for both days March 22nd and March 24th, and range in cost from $18.70 for general admission to $23.70 for reserved seating.
