It’s no accident that soccer is the most popular sport in the world—it requires little equipment, is fast paced, has clear rules, and can be played while holding a baby. Join the throngs of futbol devotees with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get a four-pack of general-admission tickets to a 2011 San Diego Boca Futbol Club pro soccer home match (a $20 value) and hot dogs and sodas for four (a $20 value) at Balboa Stadium (a $40 total value). Two home games remain, pitting the Boca FC against the San Diego Flash on June 11 and the Santa Ana Winds on July 3. Both games start at 7 p.m.
Named after the legendary team from Argentina where soccer star Diego Maradona got his start, the San Diego Boca Futbol Club follows in the fleet footsteps of its titular inspiration by promoting professional and youth soccer through its involvement in the National Premier Soccer League. Herds of brightly bedecked athletes rampage across an enormous plain to earn the confidence of a whirling, chiaroscuro globe by wooing it with feats of balance and head butting. Intersperse zigs, zags, and zips with soda sips, hot-dog bites, and vuvuzela renditions of Gary Glitter B-sides. This year’s team of cleated kickers booted their way to a fourth-place ranking in the league’s western division, leaving trembling blades of glass in their wake. With recently acquired Brazilian midfielder Zé Roberto and goal-scoring leader Justin Picou leading the charge toward postseason play, fans may redeem today's Groupon for home playoff games.
