An exciting rematch will take place this summer when the Tijuana Xolos play Club América in the San Diego Clásico.
The announcement was made last week at the home plate of Petco Park, where the game will take place on July 6th.
This match will follow the 1-1 draw at last year’s Clásico match at Qualcomm Stadium.
The Tijuana Xolos are the current champions of Mexico’s top soccer division, Liga MX. This will be their fourth time at the Clásico. The team has a strong San Diego connection with SDSU alum, Joe Corona, who was present at the press conference Saturday.
América is one of the oldest clubs in Mexican soccer history with ten domestic national titles and eight FIFA club trophies. The team is led by the top scorer in the league, Christian Benitez.
With a turnout of over 30,000 fans at Petco Park’s first soccer event in 2005, this game is expected to draw a large crowd. Information for San Diego soccer fans on ticket sales will be released soon.
