    You mean the game won't be at Cass Tech? ? ? ?

    August 2, by my guess, would be the PDL (and possibly NPSL) semi-final weekend (or SF and F in one weekend).

    I sometimes wonder why the area can't have at least one first-class match (such as this, or a US M/W match) per year.

    we've been pretty close... this will be three in four years after the AC Milan game and the USMNT Gold Cup game.

    Fox article explaining how Man United might have to pull out of this "freindly tournament." Basically, if they fall down to a spot where they enter the third qualifying round of the Europa League (meaning two sets of home-and-home qualifying rounds), they would have to cancel.

    April 10th unless you're a U of M sports booster or season ticket holder. Then tickets for them go on sale Monday (I think or it could be Tuesday). But for the general public its April 10th
