Soccer, like love, is an international language—but unlike love, it doesn't end with a van full of creamed corn and a pesky lawsuit. Leave the corn at home with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one ticket for an upper-level seat at the New England Revolution 2011 World Football Challenge game against Manchester United on Wednesday, July 13, at 8 p.m. (a $40 value). Revolution home games take place at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.
The New England Revolution's squad of savvy footballers rears its patriotic horns in anticipation of going head to head with reigning English Premier League champions Manchester United. Led by high-scoring captain Shalrie Joseph and U.S. national team midfielder Benny Feilhaber, the Revolution looks to ignore United's attempts to swap recipes and focus on squelching attacks by international superstar Wayne Rooney and captain Nemanja Vidić. The Revolution has qualified for 10 MLS Cup Playoffs since the league's inaugural season in 1996 and will relish in bringing its modern brand of The Beautiful Game upon Manchester United, England's most historically successful football club, in an exciting exhibition match on American soil. The full-field view of the stadium's upper level allows fans to catch all the fast-paced, high-flying action as the Revolution players kick, head, and use an electoral college to vote the ball into the back of the net.
