Like pterodactyls, soccer teams achieve their goals only when both left and right wings properly work together. Witness historical feats of coordination with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two general admission tickets to see FC Edmonton play Toronto FC on Wednesday, April 27 at Commonwealth Stadium (a $70.50 value).
A new addition to the North American Soccer League, FC Edmonton kicks continues through its inaugural season against MLS visitors Toronto FC. From kickoff at 6 p.m., the stadium pitch quivers with a grass-endangering clash between two of the four professional teams competing in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship, marking Edmonton's first game on a cleat-speckled trail to the championship finale. From upper and lower decks, fans cheer on a roster of local and national players from midfielder Shaun Saiko to goalkeeper Rein Baart and striker Chris Lemire as they match refined ball-based choreography against Maicon Santos' kicker cavalry.
