Soccer Sobroso continues in downtown Tucson throughout March, as FC Tucson and Rio Nuevo host Watch Parties for the final three nights of qualifying for the 2022 Men’s FIFA World Cup.
The celebration of “The World’s Game” will kick off on Thursday, March 24, as the United States plays Mexico at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Tucson’s Watch Party will be held at the Tucson Convention Center, where fans of both national teams will have the opportunity to enjoy food trucks, music and watch the game on a pair of 20-foot big screens.
“Soccer sobroso is an opportunity for our community to celebrate southern Arizona’s culture, food and music through our love of soccer,” said Amanda Powers, president of FC Tucson. “Whether you’re wearing the red, white and blue and cheering for the U.S., or the green, white and red and are a proud supporter of Mexico, we want all our fans to come out and enjoy the game with us.”
The Desert Showcase presented by Visit Tucson is a platform for FC Tucson, Tucson’s professional soccer club, and Official Community Partner, Rio Nuevo, to showcase Tucson’s City of Gastronomy designation. Sonoran Hot Dogs, Horchata, Agua Fresca and more will be on the menu for purchase for fans to enjoy while taking in the match.
