Red Stars single-game tickets go on sale


Single-game tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday for Chicago Red Stars home games for the National Women's Soccer League season, team officials have announced.

The Red Stars are members of the eight-team NWSL, organized and administered by the U.S. Soccer Federation, that will begin play in this April.

U.S. Soccer is subsidizing the salaries of the 23 American players, while the Canadian Soccer Association and the Federation of Mexican Football will each do the same for 16 players. The eight founding clubs are the Boston Breakers, Chicago Red Stars, FC Kansas City, Portland Thorns FC, Seattle Reign FC, Sky Blue FC (New York/New Jersey), the Washington Spirit and the Western New York Flash.

All Red Stars home games will be played at the Benedictine Sports Complex in Lisle, and there are five ticket options: General Reserved ($15); Club Reserved ($20); Goal Side Bleachers ($25); Field Side Bench ($30); and Field Side VIP ($50). Discounted rates are available for groups of 10 or more.

For tickets, contact Jay Adelberg at 773-697-8699 or jadelberg@chicagoredstars.com.

Chicago's home opener is April 14 against Olympian Hope Solo and Seattle Reign FC.
