Wednesday, November 17th @ 7:30 PM Guatemala will play Guyana in what will be the first men’s full international match played at KSU Soccer Stadium. Radio station 105.3 fm El Patron is the title sponsor in what is to be the first of many matchups in the El Patron Internation Soccer Series. NAPA Auto Parts is also on board as a presenting sponsor of the event.
“This is the coming together of two Latin American countries: one representing South America and the other representing Central America,” said Austin Thompson, Jr., Vice President of the Guyana Association of Georgia.
Guatemala is rated No. 122 in the current FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings and Guyana just ahead at No. 98. These countries also rank among the top 20 in Continental rankings with Guyana at No. 8 and Guatemala at No. 14. The FIFA/Coca-Cola rankings are often doubted and I think it should be interesting to see if Guatemala and Guyana are in the same class.
Do you think this will be the first sellout of KSU Soccer stadium or do you think the mid-week date will make it difficult to fill the seats?
