    CONCACAF Cup Match Between USA and Mexico on October 10 at the Rose Bowl Sold Out

    Organizers offering practical tips for commute to stadium; game to be televised in U.S. on Univision/UDN in Spanish and FS1 in English

    Miami (Monday, October 5, 2015) - The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today announced that CONCACAF Cup, presented by Scotiabank, between the United States and Mexico on Saturday, October 10, at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA (6 p.m. PT), is sold out. 
     
    The winner of the match, which will be televised in the U.S. by Univision/UDN in Spanish and FS1 in English, will earn a berth in the prestigious FIFA Confederations Cup, to be played in Russia in 2017. 
                     
    “This is one of the biggest soccer games to be played on North American soil since the 1994 World Cup, and the fans have certainly responded,” said CONCACAF Acting General Secretary Ted Howard.  “Whether you are in the stadium, or watching on television, we are looking forward to bringing fans a truly historic sporting event.”
     
    With more than 90,000 fans expected in what will be one of that weekend’s largest soccer crowds anywhere in the world, organizers are encouraging fans to plan their commute in advance and take advantage of several fan conveniences being offered by the local organizers:

    • Vehicles with four or more passengers will receive a discounted stadium parking rate of $25 (General Parking $40)
    • Free fan shuttles will run from the Parsons Engineering Building in Old Town Pasadena. The shuttles will be running on dedicated roads directly in and out of the stadium prior to, during and after the match.
    • Fans with tickets are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy the interactive Fan Fest on the Brookside Golf Course Driving Range, featuring various sponsor booths, music, food and autograph sessions by soccer legends.  Stadium parking lots will open as early as 2 p.m. PT. 
    • Fans can visit http://www.rosebowlstadium.com/concacaf-cup for additional details on shuttle information, interactive maps, and more information on the pre-match activities like the CONCACAF Cup Fan Fest.
    • NOTE: There will be ticket check points for all vehicles entering the Stadium on match day.  Those without a ticket will not be permitted into the Stadium area, and should make alternate plans for viewing the CONCACAF Cup soccer match

    In 2013, CONCACAF announced the split of the region's berth to the FIFA Confederations Cup between two editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, assuring that both editions of the Gold Cup in each four-year cycle have the same importance from a competitive perspective. By winning the recent 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Mexico qualified for the CONCACAF Cup against the 2013 Gold Cup champion, the United States.

    CONCACAF Cup is presented by Scotiabank and sponsored by AT&T, Delta Air Lines, Jarritos. Nike and State Farm.
