Update (08/04/2015): the two teams, Athletic Club and Tijuana, have already confirmed their participation.
We’ve been talking for some time about a great sporting event that is to be one of the highlights of Jaialdi 2015, to be held in Boise: a football (soccer) match between Athletic and a American team to take place in Idaho’s capital.
We have to admit that we feel this Jaialdi will be historic. In truth, they all are. But we are sure that this one will bring events and announcements of events (mark our words), which will make it very special.
Anyway, back to the football game that was recently billed as a possibility. Well, it’s no longer a possible event; it’s an emerging reality. The information received from KTVB regarding the participation of a good Mexican team is a fact that we can now confirm. This team will confirm its participation very soon.
And if we already know the name of team that will play (although it still has not been made public), it is not hard to assume that everything else has already been arranged. Thus it’s very likely that the game will indeed be played.
One further clue: The website of the association that organizes the event, The Basque Soccer Friendly LLC, is reporting that the team will be Mexican, and it has created a figure of preferred registered attendants to grant them special benefits once everything is in place; this figure has been called «Kuadrilla» (Crew). And, for the first time, there is talk of revenues. As we say, it is clear that everything is «booming«.
All of this will be revealed very soon. You’ve been forewarned… Stay tuned so that, if attending Boise, you don´t miss this big event!

Top team from Mexico to play in Boise soccer match
A top-ranked Liga MX team from Mexico will participate in a highly anticipated soccer exhibition match in Boise this summer. In a news release Sunday, The Basque Soccer Friendly announced that the Liga MX team would play instead of a team from Major League Soccer (MLS). The group said that they were originally in negotiations with MLS teams to play in the July 29 exhibition game, but the MLS scheduled their all-star game for that same night, meaning the team’s best players would not be available.
