Today is the day that many have been anxiously awaiting, the day that Athletic Bilbao takes on Club Tijuana in Boise’s Albertson Stadium, the home of the Boise State Broncos, in the Basque Soccer Friendly! As I write this, the match will take place in less than 11 hours. An amazing achievement, a testament to the hard work of many, in particular Argia Beristain and Keenan Dougherty. Despite a conflict first with MLS’s all star game and then with Blibao’s own entry into the Europa League championships, they made this happen. Zorionak!
If, like me, you can’t be there to soak up the action and watch this historic match — only the second time that Athletic Bilbao has played on US soil — you can still take part in the fun. The match will be live streamed and will be available on demand next week. For details about streaming the match, go here!
