"Wednesday's match against Brazil in Qatar 17 is the next Argentina national team commitment, A say, which has Messi and all the cracks. Then, the agenda will be resumed in February 2011, on 9, Copenhagen, Denmark, where Sergio Batista's team will play against England. And in March, the 26th, will play against U.S. in Seattle (a square in the MLS where you always play full court) and 29 still to be confirmed, against Mexico or Costa Rica (if Tri, would be in Los Angeles, if the Ticos in San José, Costa Rica).

But one of the novelties of the new project is the creation Checho, apart from local selection, the selected B, a set of players who play in Europe and do not have many chances to show themselves. And that, in AFA are already working on the construction of a series of friendlies. It would be in the first week of June 2011, just after the European season. "It will not be easy to get rival or top-level positions because they are our stars, but the idea is to build two or three friendlies," a source confided to Olé."

We definitely need to pack the stadium with as many USA fans as possible and then maybe we can get a meaningful USA game.

Surely this is not going to be the friendly included in the season tickets.

I don't think $o. I am sure that USSF does not want to split its pie.

The FO has guaranteed to us that the friendly will be the Sounders vs. a top club team. So, I think discussion about this being the friendly is pretty dumb.

Either way, I am also pumped for this.

And the source for that seems to be this tweet from Joshua Mayers:

I've been told the 2011 Sounders FC season-ticket package will be 18 games: 17 MLS, 1 big-time friendly "against a top 5 team in the world"
http://twitter.com/joshuamayers/statuses/27566492890

When I renewed my ticket, it mentioned "one top tier international friendly". Did not specify that it would be Sounders playing or even that it would be club teams...
