More than 41,000 tickets have been sold for the United States' final Send-Off Series match on Saturday in Jacksonville, FL. The U.S. expected a good crowd against Nigeria at Everbank Field and it looks like that's exactly what they'll get.
The Americans have gotten good support in Jacksonville so to see them do so again in a World Cup year is no surprise. When the U.S. and Scotland played a friendly in Jacksonville in May 2012, 44,438 showed up and 18,656 showed up to see the women last year.
With ticket sales topping 41,000 already, the crowd could top 50,000 come Saturday. There are still three days left to sell tickets, including walkups so sales only figure to go up.
In 2010, the final match of the Send-Off Series was played in Philadelphia, PA and 55,407 showed up at Lincoln Financial Field. Odds are that Jacksonville won't reach that number, but it should still be a good crowd.
The U.S. will be playing in an Everbank Field that is somewhat under construction as work continues on a giant new video board. That construction is completely out of the seating areas so all of the seats will be available.
