Club América and Pumas UNAM derby at StubHub Center in Carson Saturday is a sell-out


A capacity crowd is expected Saturday at 24,500-seat StubHub Center for an exhibition game Saturday between the two Mexico City clubs. Presumably that also means tickets for the grass berm at one end of the station, which can add another 2,500 people to the capacity have also been sold out.

From the press release:

“Starting at 2 p.m. Club América fans will be able to enjoy a Fiesta Futbolera outside the stadium that will feature trophies, official mascot, former players, live music, food, interactive sponsor activations, and the Mexico vs. New Zealand game on a jumbotron.”

Does that mean fans of the opposing team are not welcome?
