Messi & Friends vs The World Game

The buzz has begun for “Messi and Friends vs. The World”, the upcoming friendly that will unite the world’s great soccer stars in an event bringing the best players in the world to Chicago’s historic Soldier Field. Today the official word was released on when the world’s soccer fans can begin scooping up tickets to the once-in-a-lifetime event -- Ticketmaster will make the Messi & Friends versus The World Tickets available on Saturday, March 30 at 10 a.m. CDT. 

The July 6 all-star match is expected to sell out quickly, and will be led by Lionel Messi, the world’s first and only four-time Ballon d’Or winner as FIFA player of the year. Other elite soccer players participating include Javier Alejandro Mascherano, Guillermo Suarez, Diego Lugano, Jose Manuel Pinto, Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song, Emiliano Insua and Ricky Alvarez. In total, this friendly will feature 36 highly decorated soccer players uniting for charity, which is being coordinated by Numero 5, LLC. 

The match will be the final opportunity to see the world’s soccer elite together before the World Cup in Brazil in 2014. Tickets for the world-class match will be available exclusively from Ticketmaster, and are at several price levels ranging from upper deck seats beginning at $55 up to premium seats for $400. In addition to tickets for the public, a limited number of VIP packages are available. These packages include tickets, unprecedented field access, a meet and greet with players, and a jersey and ball autographed by Messi.
