SANDY, Utah (Monday, August 16, 2010) – After climbing to second place on
Major League Soccer’s overall table over the weekend, Real Salt Lake
(11-4-6, 39 pts.) will take a brief hiatus from regular season play over the
next two weeks to focus on its first-ever appearance in the CONCACAF
Champions League
. The defending MLS Cup champions will start Group A
round-robin play in the regional club championship this Wednesday, Aug. 18,
when the Claret-and-Cobalt welcome Panamanian champs Arabe Unido to Rio
Tinto Stadium
for an 8:00 p.m. kickoff.

 

Tickets for Wednesday’s historic
contest in Sandy, which cost just $15 in all seating areas (excluding
Club seats), remain available and can be purchased online at www.RealSaltLake.com and www.RioTintoStadium.com, over the

weekdays from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

 

Real Salt Lake’s international
competition debut will be televised live by Fox Soccer Channel, while
fans can also follow the action as it unfolds via RSL’s official radio partners

After
having this weekend off from match action, Real Salt Lake will continue
CONCACAF Group A play during Matchweek #2 next Wednesday, Aug. 25, when
the Utah side will travel to Mexico City to face the runner-up of the
tournament each of the past two seasons, Cruz Azul. Kickoff for that contest
is slated for 6:00 p.m. MT, and fans can again follow live on Fox
Soccer Channel, ESPN 700, ESPN Deportes 1600-AM, and Homero 106.1-FM

Salt Lake will look to make history during the trek down to Mexico City, as no

CONCACAF play on Mexican soil.
