U.S.-Mexico soccer at the Coliseum tonight

"Two international soccer clubs — the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer and UAG Tecos of Guadalajara — will meet tonight at 7 in the Soccer World Super Clasico at the Coliseum. It will mark the first time the downtown Nashville stadium, better known as the home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, will host a soccer match."

"The Tecos, which compete in the Mexican Premier League, are led by former Mexican Olympians Antonio Alvarado and Danilo Turcios. Their home is Jalisco, a Mexican state which has a strong immigrant presence in Middle Tennessee."

"Parking gates will open at today at 4 p.m. with Soccer World footing the parking bill for the first 6,000 fans. Officials were reluctant to predict an attendance figure for the game, only speculating that they expect a big walk-up crowd."
