Philadelphia is steadily becoming a soccer town. And with the recent announcement by the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF ), the fan base could grow quickly.
On Tuesday, CONCACAF announced Lincoln Financial Field — home of the Philadelphia Eagles — will the host of a doubleheader in the quarterfinal round.
The Sunday matches taking place on June 30 will involve the winner of Group B facing the Group D runner up, as well as the Group D winner taking on the Group B runner up. Start times and broadcast information will be announced at a later date, writes John George in the Philadelphia Business Journal.
