Exhibition Game: Peru vs. Mexico

Mexicans and Peruvian fans get ready to get wild because your national soccer team will have a friendly match on April 17, 2013 at Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA. I think this is already a tune up game for both teams because World Cup is coming next year. The World Cup is the world’s most widely viewed sporting event; an estimated 715.1 million people watched the FIFA World Cup. The next three World Cups will be hosted by Brazil in 2014, Russia in 2018, and Qatar in 2022.

Peru National Football team has won the Copa América twice, qualified for four FIFA World Cup tournaments, and participated in two Olympic tournaments. Peru’s traditional footballing rival is Chile, but the team also has a prominent rivalry with Ecuador. The classic colours of the team are white and red, the colours of the Peruvian flag, and the team is commonly known as la Blanquirroja (Spanish for “the white-and-red”).

The Mexico National Football team had qualified for the last four World Cups and on the whole it had qualified for thirteen World Cups. In the last four World Cups this team had entered the second round but had not made any further progress. Their best results were reaching the Quaterfinals of the FIFA World Cup in 1970 and 1986, both of which were hosted by Mexico. Cheer on the Mexican national team in person wear green, red, and white, Mexico fans follow their team around the globe to watch them play.

If you haven’t attended a Mexico game before in your life, you are in for a treat when you book your Peru vs Mexico Exhibition Game Tickets to a soccer game.
