Chivas USA to face Pachuca, Puebla and Houston in SuperLiga

i-856843f8400644b5deca8f742b541995-superligalogo0001.jpgSo it appears we’ll be seeing more of World Cup-bound Herculez Gomez, who just signed for Pachuca from Puebla, in Southern California.

The schedule and groups were announced this morning with the start of group beginning just three days after the conclusion of the World Cup. Struggling Chivas USA, who last year went three and out in SuperLiga and are currently inhabiting the MLS Western Conference basement, will play three SuperLiga games in seven days.

No word yet when tickets will go on sale.

The games for Chivas USA:

*7:30 p.m. Thursday July 15 vs. Puebla at Home Depot Center

*5 p.m. Sunday July 18 vs. Houston Dynamo in Houston

*7:30 p.m. Wednesday July 21 vs. Pachuca at Home Depot Center

Pachuca, crowned 2007 champions when they beat the Galaxy on penalty kicks in Carson, also feature U.S. international Jose Francisco Torres. Modest Puebla are making their first tournament appearance.

In the other four-team group, the Chicago Fire and New England revolution faces Morelia and Pumas.

All games will be shown live on Univision.
