    Personally, I hope they play Holland in Amsterdam again, because it would complete playing the two final teams within the same year.

    I'm hoping for US vs Italy in either New Jersey or London one of these next few years. I want them to get that payback vs Rossi.

    belgium, sounds good, a team that we havn't played in a while and one that is not doing too bad in euro qualifying.

    I'm going to be in columbus in august, it would be awesome if there was a friendly there in august (or anywhere in the midwest). as for revenge vs. rossi, the sweetest thing would be if he never plays in a world cup

    Re: USA at Belgium in September 2011

    September 8th is a Thursday; are you sure the paper got the date right? Only saying this from past experience as most international matches are at the weekend on the Saturday or Sunday, and if not they are played on Tuesday or Wednesday. This seems a little strange to me almost as if it's too early for the players coming from club competitions the week before.

    Belgium has a EURO2012 qualifier on Friday September 2nd but then has the next matchday off. the next Euro qualifiers are scheduled for Tuesday, September 6th

    http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro2012/matches/index.html

    so, i think Tuesday or at the latest Wednesday the 7th is a more likely date IF this were to happen

    The Belgian soccer federation (Royal Belgian Football Association) has Belgium scheduled to play the United States on September 6.

    I am going to attend. I guess we need to buy tix from the Belgian federation. Or will USSF sell a block?

    i am contacting the USSF to see if they will be getting any allocation to sell. will keep everyone who is interested posted.

    I called Kim at USSF Supporters Club this morning. She said USSF will not be offering tickets and will have to contact Belgium FF.

    Now that is just stupid of them. Didn't they offer tickets for the friendlies in England & Holland?
     
  21. thethinwhiteduke

    Feb 13, 2008
    its not unheard of for the USSF to not offer tickets for an away match. there have also been some qualifiers where they did not receive an allocation and offer tickets.
     
  22. thethinwhiteduke

    Feb 13, 2008
    im in the same boat. doesnt look like the Belgian FA has put tickets on sale yet. id say keeping an eye on that website and/or emailing them for an onsale date is our best bet

    i sent an email to the stadium operators and to the Belgian FA asking for instructions to purchase tickets.

    Here is what I got so far...

    Dear Mr. Nicholson,



    The King Baudouin Stadium hosts the football match Belgium - USA, but is not in charge of the actual organisation nor ticketing.



    For further information, please contact the official organisation:

    Royal Belgian Football Association

    02/477 12 11

    info@footbel.com - www.footbel.com



    Best regards,

    Yeah, One Goal USA had a good thing on that. The US fans stayed at the same hotel as the team, yet they couldn't buy tickets through the USSF.

    The Belgian Federation site still has the tix for the Turkey game listed. There will be an announcement soon. Tickets should not be hard to come by for this one.

    Should US fans try to sit in the same section? They probably dont even separate the tickets for the US in Europe.
