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 $8, you get a 400-level ticket (a $16 value) to watch the Milwaukee Wave take on the Baltimore Blast on March 6 at the U.S. Cellular Arena.
The Milwaukee Wave will turn another page in its storied history book on March 6 when its 2010–11 squad sets out to defend last year's regular-season championship and solidify its playoff position against current the league leaders the Baltimore Blast. Catch goal-scoring machine Giuliano Oliviero and Brazilian midfielder Hewerton take on top-10-scoring leaders Pat Healey and Pat Morris, where virtually every seat offers flawless views of the field to spot every clutch save and game-tying goal without x-ray binoculars or Hubble Space Telescopes.
As the game unfolds, take breaks to admire the Wave's 11 home jerseys, each one custom-designed with the logo and colors of a different charity. After matches, jerseys are autographed and auctioned off to support organizations including the American Diabetes Association/JDRF, Special Olympics, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
More than 4,200 Facebookers are fans of the Milwaukee Wave.
The longest running professional soccer franchise in the United States, the Milwaukee Wave debuted in 1984 as one of the six charter members of the American Indoor Soccer Association. Now, nearly three decades later, and as part of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the club builds upon a history that already includes six league championships–most notably, back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.
Off the field, the Wave's positive impact ripples into the community through an educational program, Making Waves, which sends players to more than 70 schools annually to discuss why healthy habits are good and why mistaking a referee for a zebra could be bad. The club maintains those community-inspired good vibes during its home games at U.S. Cellular Arena, where frequent promotions and mascot Brad Beach keep fans of all ages entertained.
