Mexico to Kick Off the Hugo Sanchez Era with Five Matches in its 2007 U.S. Tour

The Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF), together with Soccer United Marketing (SUM), recently announced the Mexican National Team’s 2007 U.S. Tour. As in previous tours, the Mexican National Team, under new coach and soccer legend Hugo Sanchez, will play five games. The dates are February 28, March 28, August 22, September 12 and October 17, 2007.

The first will take place at Qualcomm Stadium with Mexico taking on Venezuela.

In its three previous editions, the Mexican National Team tour has seen half a million fans attend its matches, averaging 40,000 fans at stadiums across the country. Sites that have previously hosted Mexico include The Home Depot Center and the Los Angeles Coliseum in Southern California, Soldier Field in Chicago and Reliant Stadium in Houston.

The 2007 tour will assist in Mexico’s preparation for this summer’s marquee CONCACAF Gold Cup (USA is the defending champions) and its South American equivalent, Copa America.
