    USMNT vs Costa Rica ticket sales currently at 6,500. Pathetic.

    • I wouldn’t pay to watch that match.

      • Scott of Nazareth says:

        Therein lies the problem – how does US Soccer justify charging people $50+ a ticket for such a game?

        If you want to grow the game in this country try to be flexible and price the tickets accordingly.

        A January Friendly vs a CONCACAF team other than Mexico should be priced at best, maybe $15…

        Maybe you get away with higher prices for Brazil, Argentina, England, Germany, Italy, etc.

        So dumb.

      • I would pay max. $30

      • Chris Gibbons says:

        $10 for adults, kids are free. They’ll want to go to every single match after that, and with $20 to park and another $100 to feed the group, you’re good.

      • Scott of Nazareth says:

        Spot on Chris!
