CLUB AMERICA TO PLAY CRUZ AZUL IN ADDITION TO MAN CITY AND PORTSMOUTH

The ‘Clasico Joven’ is coming to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena California this summer as two Mexico City super clubs will renew their rivalry on July 10, the day before the 2010 World Cup Final.

The ‘Young Classic’ is the Mexico City derby between Club America and Cruz Azul, but that derby will be transplanted to the Los Angeles area to be contested in front on 90,000+ ex-patriot Mexicans.

America has already scheduled a July 14 match against English side Portsmouth in San Diego and a July 28 match against Manchester City in Atlanta.
