Busy day here in the bakery...
It had been rumored for a while, but now it's official. The Silverbacks will host the Rayados de Monterrey in a friendly on Thursday, July 12. This is in addition to bringing Cruz Azul to Atlanta on July 26.
Tickets are on sale, but it's not clear what prices will be. Will they be normal prices, Cruz Azul prices ($37.50 or $55), or somewhere in between?
This does bring up an issue of fixture congestion. The two friendlies, plus a crowded league schedule, and the Open Cup make things difficult. They will be playing 6 games in 16 days.
