usmnt turkey US Soccer Announces Lottery System for Tickets to Match Against Turkey

U.S. Soccer announced yesterday that tickets for the highly anticipated match versus Turkey on June 1 at Red Bull Arena will be distributed to the general public thorough a lottery system.

Unlike the match versus Nigeria in Jacksonville, in which fans can purchase their tickets on and over 20,000 fans already have, fans wanting to go to the Turkey match will have to apply for a lottery system, much like the World Cup.

Applications will be accepted through for a 24-hour period beginning May 1 at 10 a.m. ET and concluding May 2 at 10 a.m. ET.  Applications will be limited to four tickets per household.

However, if you are a Visa cardholder, because of Visa’s sponsorship deal with U.S. Soccer, you will have access to an advance ticket sale for this match before the sale to the general public. This advance sale starts Wednesday, April 30, at 10 a.m. ET and runs until Thursday, May 1, at 8 a.m. ET on Obviously enough, Visa will be the only payment method accepted through the Visa presale.

The match against Turkey is the second of three Send-Off Series games for the U.S. Men’s National Team prior to its departure for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The USMNT will open their Send-Off Series when it hosts Azerbaijan on May 27 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. They will then travel to New Jersey to take on Turkey, and later travel to Jacksonville on June 7 to face fellow World Cup finalists Nigeria.

Kickoff for the game versus Turkey is set for 2 p.m. ET, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN2, WatchESPN, UniMas and ESPN Deportes Radio.
