Boise will host arena soccer teams representing the U.S., Colombia, Mexico and Somolia in a two-day soccer friendly slated for Friday, Aug. 17, and Saturday, Aug. 18, at CenturyLink Arena. Tickets, starting at $20, are already on sale at the CenturyLink Arena box office or at 208-331-TIXS.

This is the second year in which Team USA will participate in a Boise soccer friendly.

“It’s going to be fast-paced and competitive, and fans are going to see some of the best arena players from around the world," said CenturyLink Arena General Manager Eric Trapp. “Last year was such a tremendous experience for our city and for the Treasure Valley soccer community that we were eager to bring arena soccer back again, and to make it an even bigger spectacle this time around.”

Team Mexico will take on Team Colombia on Aug. 17 at 5:30 p.m., followed by Team USA facing Team Somalia at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday the 18th, the losers of the Friday matches will square off for third place at 5 p.m. while the Friday winners play at 7 p.m. for the tournament championship.
