Are they coming to NYC?

pep said...

Probably not, ShaiM. The third game would also be on the west coast.

Barcik said...

This means no asian tour?

pep said...

I guess not. They start in London, then this trip, they might have to play the spanish and/or super cup, so there won't be any time left before the start of the season.

Barcik said...

Ok, thanks.

pep said...

No problem. I meant "spanish and/or european super cup", by the way.

they could possible play chivas of guadalajara
they have made that a staple game in all four tours
and it generates the most because of the fan base for them on the west coast
although if Becks doesn't leave that will be pretty big also

No EAST SIDE this year. They are doing WEST COAST CONNECTION.



Dude said...

Oh Jacob USC plays at the Coliseum, UCLA is the team that plays at the Rose bowl.
