SUPERLIGA: DATES AND VENUES ANNOUNCED

Major League Soccer and the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF) unveiled the dates and venues for the 2010 edition of SuperLiga on Thursday.  SuperLiga features MLS and Mexican soccer clubs and awards the winner with a big cash prize.

The four Major League Soccer teams in the 2010 Superliga qualified based on their 2009 regular season record and excluding teams already competing in the CONCACAF Champions Cup.  2009 Finalists Chicago Fire will lead the MLS sides, with Chivas USA, Houston Dynamo and New England Revolution rounding out the field.

The four invited Mexican clubs have yet to be named but an announcement is expected following the conclusion of current season.

The 2010 Superliga will be the fourth consecutive year of the tournament and will be played over eight days beginning on Wednesday, July 14 at Chicago’s Toyota Park and at New England, though Gillette Stadium has yet to be confirmed as the venue. Attention then shifts west where on Thursday July 15 Houston’s Robertson Stadium and Home Depot Center, home of Chivas USA, will host matches.
