US Men’s Soccer Team Advances to 2014 World Cup

Soccer TicketsOn Tuesday, September 10th, the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team beat Mexico in a 2-0 victory.  This match was a 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying game and this win earned the USMNT their way into the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The USMNT fate was sealed for the 2014 tournament after Honduras competed against Panama in Tegucigalpa in a 2-2 tie.  This is USA’s seventh successive FIFA World Cup Berth and 10th in total.

The USA vs. Mexico match was an event to be seen and tensions were high for both teams.  A point of interest, this was the fourth time in a row in a World Cup Qualifying cycle that USA beat Mexico 2-0 at Crew Stadium. Strange, huh?

The stars of the match were Eddie Johnson and Landon Donovan.   Johnson scored his 19th goal of his career and 12th in a World Cup event.  One of his goals included a header off of Donovan’s corner kick in the 49th minute.  Donovan put the proverbial nail in the coffin in the 78th minute with his goal.

The USMNT broke records this year by winning 14 games in a calendar year.  This is an improvement over their 2013 record which was 14-3-2 and 13 wins in 2009 and 2005.

The next game for the 2014 World Cup Qualifying takes place on October 11th against Jamaica in Kansas City, KS at Sporting Park, though USA already has their plane tickets booked for Brazil.  The match will kick off at 5:30 PM C.T.

On October 15th, the US Men’s Team will finish up the Hexagonal when they play Panama at Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City.

As far as other teams go, Costa Rica qualified for the World Cup with a 1-1 tie against last place Jamaica. Costa Rica tapered off to second place, one point following USA in the CONCACAF standings, and Honduras is in third place with 11 points.

For the World Cup, the top three teams qualify undoubtedly. The fourth place team after will ultimately compete against Oceania Zone winner New Zealand playoff for a chance to make it to Brazil.

After the loss to USA, Mexico tied for fourth place with Panama with eight points.

Tickifieds.com Top Ticket Searches (3/2 to 3/4/2012)

Well the weekend is about over and I hope that all our loyal readers feel much more refreshed than I do.  It was an extremely busy weekend over here as we have been slaving away working on a new project – Event Bark.  Event Bark is a local event and entertainment guide where users can list local events.  While you may think that sounds a lot like Tickifieds it is actually quite different.  Although you can list event tickets for sale, Event Bark is much more focused on local and community events.  So, in addition to the normal concert, theater, and sporting events users can list thinks like garage sales, benefits and fundraisers, If you have a few minutes I encourage you to check it out and let us know what you think.  It has some really cool features such as integrated maps where you can view local events.  Any feedback would be appreciated as the site is still in beta.

Now, that the Event Bark pitch is out of the way, let’s take a look at what was hot over the weekend terms of ticket searches.  Top this weekend was swedish DJ Avicii who has 2 sold out shows in Kingston, RI and Amherst, MA in April.  It seems club music is here to stay with the popularity of Avicii, Bassnectar, and Skrillex.  Who knew?  Also ranking well this weekend are college basketball with conference tournament on the schedule for the upcoming week and international soccer.  The US and Mexico have scheduled several “Friendlies” leading up to the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying matches that seem to be extremely popular.  So here are the Top 25 Tickets searches this weekend…
