Two of the top EPL teams chose this venue to play an exhibition friendly and soccer fans responded, making this the best attended sporting event ever. That is really saying something considering that World Series Baseball was played here. The atmosphere was festive and folks from enjoyed a terrific game that ended in a 4:3 win for Manchester City.
Let us hope that this will trigger an interest in hosting an MLS team in the area. Lots of footie fans around here.
