The U.S. men’s national team’s June 9 pre-CONCACAF Gold Cup match against Venezuela at Nippert Stadium is shaping up to be quite an occasion.
U.S. Soccer fans have already moved swiftly to gobble up tickets for the contest, and a sellout could be looming in the near future.
During the presale period this week alone, tickets amounting to more than half the capacity of Nippert Stadium were sold for the match, U.S. Soccer spokesmen told The Enquirer.
The general-public sale of tickets started Thursday morning.

Clearly, the short-lived threat of the match being disrupted because of the planned temporary grass surface for the match hasn’t deterred many from going in on tickets.
U.S. Soccer pledged to provide a “first-class” playing surface for the contest.
“Laying sod at large stadiums is common practice for world-class matches, as was the case during Copa America Centenario, and again this summer with the Gold Cup, as well as other club and international matches played in the United States,” U.S. Soccer officials said in a statement last week. “We always listen to our players and their interests are extremely important to any decision. The sod, installation and maintenance planned for Cincinnati will provide players a first-class surface for what will be a tremendous night for soccer in an incredibly passionate soccer city.”
