USA Vs. Mexico Friendly: Good Tickets Available For Less Than Face

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 01: Juergen Klinsmann (L), the new head coach of the U.S. Men's National Team, speaks during a press conference at NikeTown on August 1, 2011 in New York City. Klinsmann won the FIFA World Cup as a player in 1990 and coached Germany to a third-place finish at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. His first match in charge of the U.S. National Team will be against Mexico on August 10, in Philadelphia. (Photo by Neilson Barnard/Bongarts/Getty Images)

Tickets are selling for about 70 percent of face value.

Maybe it's the fact that the United States just played Mexico in a meaningful game. Maybe it's a strange time for an international date. For whatever reason, ticket sales for Wednesday's friendly at Philadelphia Lincoln Financial Field are lagging. As of Monday, just about 23,000 tickets had been sold.

The bad news is there's a pretty good chance the stadium is only going to be half full. The good news is that plenty of seats are still available, and you can even find them for well below face value. Through the SB Nation Ticket Center, you can get in for as little as $30 and you can find seats in the midfield for as cheap as $81. Considering those tickets retail for $43 and $115, respectively, that's really not a bad deal.

While the game obviously lacks the meaning of the Gold Cup final or a World Cup qualifier, it is a chance to see Jurgen Klinsmann's sideline debut for the Red, White and Blue.
