Another busy weekend of soccer begins this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. when Real Madrid plays Toronto (live on ESPN) and at the same time the Pali Blues take on the Washington Freedom (live on Fox Soccer Channel).
Both the Galaxy and Chivas USA are out of town this weekend, but does that mean no live soccer locally?
Not at all.
The Ventura County Fusion and Chicago Fire Premier play for the PDL title at 7 p.m. Saturday at Ventura High.
If you haven’t been to Ventura in a while, I recommend you make a day of it. There’s tons to do in the area, downtown Ventura is a great place to shop or grab a bite and as an added bonus the Ventura County Fair is going on very near Ventura High.
I’m taking my own advice and I’ll be sitting in the stands with friends and family for the Fusion game, so give a shout-out if you see me.
Clarification: The game is at Buena High School (5670 Telegraph Rd., Ventura) not the high school on Main in midtown.
Click on the link to the right for a full slate of games, but here’s the ones I recommend in addition to those already mentioned:
*3 p.m. Saturday FSC Galaxy at New England
*6:30 p.m. Saturday Fox Sports Net Chivas USA at Colorado Rapids
*8 p.m. Saturday FSC CD Guadalajara-Barcelona
*7 a.m. Sunday FSC Chelsea-Manchester United in the Community Shield
*Noon Sunday FSC Real Madrid at DC United
*3 p.m. Sunday FSC Sol at Boston Breakers
Have a great weekend.
