Attention U.S. national team fans: tickets for the USA-Mexico World Cup qualifier in Columbus on Wednesday, Feb. 11 go on sale on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Those of you who have yet to buy tickets (and many die-hard fans already have secured ticket orders) can go to Ticketmaster on Jan. 28 and book your seats in what is expected to be a sell-out.

Visa cardholders will be eligible for an advanced pre-sale being held on Tuesday, Jan. 27.

The match, the first World Cup qualifier of the Hexagonal Round for both teams, is being shown on ESPN2 at 7pm.

Did you book your tickets yet?

    What’s US Soccer gotta do to get on regular ESPN?

  2. Adam says:

    Done and done!

    If anyone has an open seat in their car going from DC area to C-town let me know!

  3. TheUltra says:

    I’ll be bankrupting myself and skipping my college classes but I’ll be making the hour and a half drive up. Thankfully season tickets have gotten me 3 tickets already set!

  4. DeliBelly says:

    What is the deal with waiting until 2 weeks before the match to start selling tickets to the public? Tickets for the Confederations Cup IN JUNE are already available for sale. I don’t get it. US Soccer are a bunch of idiots.

    How are people already able to scoop up tickets? (other than paying $300 per ticket on StubHub)

  5. AltiCooper says:

    Completely off topic… Zak whitebread had the winning goal today in the FA cup for Millwall

  6. sack says:


    Supporter club membership has its privillages.

    Its called a pre-order.

  7. Josh says:

    pre-ooooordeeeer braaah! totally all ready have my tickets through diligently checking every major soccer site for the last few weeks. I will be flying in from maryland and partying with my brethren. Does anyone know anything about Columbus i.e. bars, good restaurants. I know Ohio State University is close by, so there has to be some good watering holes.

  8. Chase says:

    25 members of the SCB will by flying to Houston for this one. Can’t wait !.

    Hopefully US fans will scoop up all the tickets before the mexican fans can try and get them.

    Have Subotic play for US

  13. Brett says:

    Plenty of places to party before and after the game in Cbus. The American Outlaws are having a get together the night before at Ruby Tuesdays (not the chain) which is right by the stadium. Also, Fado Irish pub at the Easton Town Center is a great soccer bar! Can’t wait for this one! I got friends flying in from DC and NYC for the match! Dos a Cero!!!

  14. Dave says:

    got mine already. driving 15 hours and missing classes to be there. WHAT!

  15. Jason says:

    No way this game would be on ESPN on a Wednesday night during the heart of college basketball season.

    Look at it this way ESPN2 is an upgrade from the 2005 game which was on ESPN Classic.

  16. Mexico Wins 2-1 says:

    First time Mexico defeats USA in OH.

    You heard it here first.

    USA 1 – Mexcio 2

  17. Eric R says:

    mi alma se muere

  18. Scott A says:

    First time Carlos Bocanegra gives Omar Bravo a black eye and makes him cry.

    YOu heart it here first.

  19. M says:

    Monkey’s will fly when Mexico defeats the US on home soil

  20. MC says:

    Continental is the biggest rip off and I will not be attending for that reason. I tried booking a flight a month ago from Houston direct to Continental and flights are $936 to leave Wed. morning and comeback Thurs morning.


    This game is going to be awesome. I was there for the friendly last year in Houston and had the best time of my life.

  21. M says:

    MC, you can get flights to Columbus on Southwest Airlines for $49.

  22. Lot 8 says:

    Booked my tickets, and will be missing 2 days of work and driving 6 hours from Central Pennsylvania!

  23. GLS says:

    MC – yikes, $936! Some friends and I booked Southwest holiday fare flights from DC (well, BWI actually) for $49. I’m pumped.

  24. Chris says:

    So are the people who got the early tickets just in the supporters sections?

    I’m guessing so.

    I need to get a visa card.

  25. rednow.red4ever says:

    No presale? This was a good opportunity for supporters who want to remain independent of the groups. Oh well, now a VISA will be of primary use I spose…

  26. Mighty says:

    Where can i find cheap flights… flying from….. NJ.

  27. Cam says:

    Glad I have a Visa card. I’ve been having dreams about this game. USA 3 – Mex 0

  28. patrick says:

    tickets from LI to Columbus flying in the day of and leaving the next day are currently $168 or so.

  29. Kevin Johnson says:

    Got 8 tickets in the mail on there way! Making the drive from Cincinnati. Cannot wait for the game!!!

  30. hartman says:

    very suprised not to get a ussoccerfan presale, seems like they’ve always done that, huge bummer. as i’m sure plenty of scalpers have Visa’s

  31. Mighty says:

    Hey guys… Go to Delta.. they have cheap tickets… from la guardia NY… to Columbos Ohio… i just paid.. 118 for flight… no stops… round trip.
