Under-23s in SoCal

Home Depot Center will serve as site of the Olympic qualifying tournament, well, at least partially.

HDC will host three doubleheaders in a five-day span. On March 12, 14 and 16, four teams will play for the right to advance further in the qualifying tournament and possibly win a spot in Beijing.

Only the dates are certain but the US will be based in Tampa so the games out here will likely feature Mexico. The US will play their games in Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium.

The semifinals and final will be played in Nashville, Tenn.

Nashville, Tenn.?
I must be really out of touch. I didn't realize that Nashville was a big soccer town. Very cool. Slowly but surely the footprint gets bigger.

What's next?
Nashville FC? AC Music City? Athletico Nashville? Real Nashville?

What a joke!

It's not a joke for me; I live 3 hours from Nashville and just so happen to have a sister that lives there. Plus it occurs during my Spring Break! Finals here I come! The stars have aligned!!!
