Attention soccer aficionados — INVESCO Field at Mile High is set to host an international match this summer.
The Mexican national team will host New Zealand at INVESCO on Wednesday, June 1 at 8 p.m. MDT as part of Mexico’s 2011 U.S. Tour.
“We look forward to hosting Mexico and New Zealand in what will be an exciting match for fans to enjoy,” Broncos Senior Vice President of Business Development Mac Freeman said. “INVESCO Field at Mile High is a World-class facility and a perfect venue for this international sporting event.”
The match, which will take place four days prior to Mexico’s opening game in the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup, will mark “El Tri’s” first visit to INVESCO Field at Mile High since suffering a 1-0 exhibition loss to the U.S. Men’s National Team on April 3, 2002, in front of 48,476 fans.
