New Zealand Revealed as Rival for Mexico's October 8 Match at Nashville's Nissan Stadium; Nissan Named as Event's Presenting Sponsor

Ticket Sales Approaching 20,000 for Mexican National Team U.S. Tour's First-Ever Visit to "Music City"


/EINPresswire.com/ -- NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - August 01, 2016) - Five-time Oceania champions New Zealand today was named as Mexico's rival for the Oct. 8 match to be played at Nashville's Nissan Stadium. The announcement was made at a news conference featuring Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, where it was also revealed that Nissan will be the event's presenting sponsor. Kickoff time has been set for 5:00 p.m. CT for the internationally televised game.

Ticket sales for the event are approaching 20,000. Seats are available via TicketMaster.com, by calling 800-653-8000, or by visiting the Nissan Stadium box office.

The game in "Music City" will serve as an important tune-up for Mexico Head Coach Juan Carlos Osorio, who will look to prepare his squad for November CONCACAF World Cup qualifying contests. With the Nashville game being played during an official FIFA fixture window, the team is expected to field a top roster, including European-based players.

New Zealand currently sits atop of Group B in Oceania World Cup qualifying, with a perfect record of 3-0-0. The team has twice participated in the FIFA World Cup (1982, 2010).

Mexico enjoys an all-time record of 4 wins, 0 ties and 1 loss against New Zealand. The two teams last met on November 20, 2013 in Wellington, NZ with Mexico winning 4-2 as part of a two-game World Cup qualification series, won by Mexico.

To get ready for the match, fans can visit the new US-based official Mexican National Team digital store, http://store.miseleccion.us/, featuring the latest team gear such as jerseys, hats, and more.

At the fútbol fiesta, Nissan will have an interactive fan zone featuring Nissan products, including a TITAN XD wrapped in red, white and green, and branded giveaways. Fans can also show their support of El Tricolor by downloading the Nissan Diehard Fan™ app (http://diehardfan.com) and virtually painting their faces in the colors of the Mexican National Team.

The Tour will visit five cities across the United States in 2016, and will be broadcast nationally on the Univision family of networks, FS1, and Fútbol de Primera Radio Network.
