Ticket prices range from $29 – $49 and will go on sale to the general public at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 22 through all Ticketmaster outlets. With this game, Sun Life Stadium continues to establish itself as South Florida’s premier venue for world-class international soccer.
RSE Ventures and Insignia Sports and Entertainment will manage sponsorship and television elements associated with this unique event including Game Day Activation, TV Visible Field Level Signage, and Worldwide Television Broadcast Rights (outside of Colombia and Argentina).
Boca Juniors is enjoying one of its best seasons ever. They are strong contenders in the Argentine First Division, finalists in both the Copa Argentina and Copa Libertadores and semi-finalists in South America’s prestigious Copa America. In all, Boca has won a total of 51 national and international titles. They have lifted the Copa Libertadores trophy six times (only one club has won more) and are one of only eight clubs to have won CONMEBOL’s treble (winning all three continental club tournaments in one season), an amazing feat they are looking to achieve again this year. They are returning to South Florida for the first time since 2004.
With 13 national championships America de Cali is tied with one other club as the most successful team in Colombia. The International Federation of Football History and Statistics named America De Cali one of the top ten South American clubs the 20th century. They recently won Categoria Primera B to move back into to Primera A. “Los Diablos Rojos” (The Red Devils) celebrated their 85th anniversary in 2012.
