    Default World Football Challenge

    UPDATE:
    Only two games wont be on TV in Canada.


    The World Football Challenge or Summer of Friendlies begins tomorrow. All of the games are televised in the States on either ESPN1/2/3/desportes so finding streams shouldn't be tough. Surprisingly in Canada we will have three of these games televised.

    The games in Bold are on TSN,the game underlined and bold is on TSN2 and the games in italics are on Gol TV.

    New England Revolution Manchester United July 13 Gillette Stadium TSN
    Los Angeles Galaxy Real Madrid July 16 Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum TSN2
    Club America Manchester City July 16 AT&T Park GOL TV
    Manchester City Vancouver Whitecaps FC July 18 Empire Field TSN
    CD Guadalajara Real Madrid July 20 Qualcomm Stadium GOL TV
    Manchester United Chicago Fire July 23 Soldier Field GOL TV
    Philadelphia Union Real Madrid July 23 Lincoln Financial Field NONE
    Juventus Sporting Clube de Portugal July 23 BMO Field NONE
    Los Angeles Galaxy Manchester City July 24 The Home Depot Center TSN 2
    Juventus Club America July 26 Citi Field GOL TV
    Juventus CD Guadalajara July 28 Carter Finley Stadium GOL TV
    FC Barcelona Manchester United July 30 FedEx Field GOL TV
    FC Barcelona CD Guadalajara August 3 Sun Life Stadium GOL TV
    FC Barcelona Club America August 6 Cowboys Stadium GOL TV

    Discuss the games. Anyone going to the game in Toronto? I hear its been sold out, how is that possible at those ridiculous fees?

    Doubt that its sold out at those prices.

    I am very glad that they listened and spared TFC from being involved in this.

    This 11 day break is sorely needed.

    I don't know if it's sold out but I have tickets to it. I like to catch these non-TFC friendlies when they're in Toronto just to see some quality football. It was a little pricey thought, 1 ticket in 107 was $165...

    Its not sold out.

    Some Portuguese media outlet jumped the gun on that.

    Check out ticketmaster, plenty of seats available.

    I'd imagine its on purpose. The whitecaps game is on tsn and is Canada as well.

    I know we complain about meaningless mid-season friendlies, but watching United v New England right now in HD sure looks good. After the depressing season we have had so far it would be a welcome break to see some proper soccer for a change.

    Yeah but watching TFC get slaughtered 12-0 against Man U is not my idea of a good time.

    Plus the schedule is way too busy. Give me Barca vs Man U at BMO at less then $80 per ticket and I'm in.

    Also, watching the majority of fans at Gillette cheering against their home team is disgusting.

    We experienced that at BMO with the Real Madrid visit. Real Madrid support out weighed the TFC support (well at least in 107) and I was fighting and yelling at people around me to fucking give their heads a shake.

    I don't ever want to experience that embarrasment ever again. Why bring in a team to embarrass the home team? It makes no sense. Make TFC good, top of the league, then maybe play them against Aston Villa or something so we aren't a complete disgrace. It's disrespectful, disgraceful, abhorent, and fucking dumb.

    51,000 attendance at Gillette right now.... at MLS games... 13,000 or so. SAD.

    Boston should be ashamed of itself.

    Don't disagree with you but at the same time I do not regret paying to see the Real Madrid game one little bit. Getting to see the likes of Kaka and Ronaldo that close was pretty cool even though I can't stand the Portuguese prick.

    I disagree, this is a case where ownership is to blame. Kraft treats the Revs as an after thought. If the Revs were anywhere near Boston in a proper SSS I firmly believe their attendance would be 20k+. A rebrand and a new image wouldn't hurt either, some fan on BigSoccer came up with a brilliant fantasy rebrand.

    Yeah I agree, just not against TFC.

    Love having the big clubs here, just not slaughtering my home team.

    No thanks.

    i don't know how i feel about this i mean does hometown = fav team you think it would but not all people would agree to that
    but i can almost guarantee no one in those stands knew who fabio was
    or they prob didnt even know that macheda was loaned to samp last year for half the season
    thats why its a shame (for the so called man u fans)
    not cause mls doesn't draw the same crowds what do you expect its a better product
    not everyone is like us where soccer is part of our lifestyle they buy tickets based on the entertainment value

    Vancouver just took a surprising 1-0 lead against Manchester City in the first half. The match is live on TSN.

    Kudos to the Whitecaps for a well played match last night against a vastly superior opponent. I watched the whole game, and other than their final touch, Vancouver actually looked like they belonged on the same pitch as Manchester City.

    Any word on YaYa? What horrendous conditions to put top-flight players through. And kudos to Whitecaps fans for keeping it classy by booing the guy off the pitch as he struggles to get off.

    The pitch looked like mush and was disgraceful, and ridiculous to risk injuries for a modest amount of revenue. Hopefully Yaya will be healed up soon.

    But I remember a Burnley-City game April 3, 2010 on a flooded pitch. It was like playing football in a bathtub on some areas of the pitch. City was up 6-0 and all the City fans were sweating bullets that the game was going be abandoned for conditions. The game continued and ended 6-1. So bad pitch conditions are relative.
