In much of the world, soccer is known as "football" and the American president is referred to as "The Ameriking." Embrace cultural differences without using your hands with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one VIP Party Loft ticket to a soccer match between Club America and Morelia on Sunday, July 10 at 5 p.m. (a $40 value) at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
Recognized by SI.com in 2010 as one of the last decade's best new stadiums, University of Phoenix Stadium welcomes the rumble of international sportsmanship when Mexican Primera fútbol teams Club America and Morelia meet up in a rematch of last year's playoff clash. This year, the clubs assemble on the first completely retractable natural-grass pitch in North America in a preseason friendly, which, unlike unfriendlies, does not end in one team deleting the other on Facebook. Club America, one of Mexico's most storied franchises, arrives with eight FIFA-approved titles under their seasoned cleats, and Morelia takes the pitch bearing the 2010 North American SuperLiga title and a burning desire for permanent residency in the league's upper echelon. Footy fans immerse themselves in the beautiful game from a VIP Party Loft that sports lounge areas, flat-screen TVs, and dedicated servers keeping eagle-eyed watch as both teams tune up for the beginning of league play and the end of offseason mahjong clubs.
Boasting a capacity of 63,000-plus and two high-res scoreboards, The University of Phoenix Stadium is one of the nation's innovative multipurpose facilities, with a spacious field that plays host to events ranging from NFL games to rock concerts. Spectators can arrive up to two hours prior to the event (3 p.m.) and exchange their Groupon for a VIP Party Loft ticket at a special Groupon will-call table set up outside the box office.
