Basque Soccer Friendly ticket prices unveiled

Tickets for the July 29 friendly between Spain’s Athletic Bilbao and Mexico’s Club Tijuana range from $35 to $95, organizers for the Basque Soccer Friendly unveiled late Monday night.

Tickets go on sale to the general public starting at 10 a.m. April 27. They can be purchased at the Boise State Athletic Ticket Office at Albertsons Stadium, by calling 208-426-4737 or online at BasqueSoccerFriendly.com.

A seat map detailing prices for tickets is available here.

Those who signed up for the event’s “Kuadrilla” club get first access to as many as 10 tickets starting at 10 a.m. Thursday. Fans can sign up for the Kuadrilla for $45 until midnight Wednesday evening. In addition to first crack at tickets, members of Kuadrilla also received a T-shirt, a commemorative poster and invitations to exclusive monthly events leading up to the game.

Organizers are encouraging Tijuana followers to sit in the north end of the stadium and Bilbao fans in the south end of the stadium. Banners, drums and flags will only be allowed behind the goal lines.

Kickoff time for the game is still up in the air and depends on television requirements. Argia Beristain, the sponsorship director for the Basque Soccer Friendly, said the event is currently negotiating a television deal and is aiming for a 6 or 7 p.m. kickoff.

Tailgating spots at Albertsons Stadium are available for $25, $75 for RV spaces. Beristain said the event has applied for Boise’s “10-to-10 allowance,” which expands the zone where Boise State football fans can drink alcohol around the stadium from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on game day. Beristain said the event is also looking into beer and wine sales inside the stadium.

The game, which will require a grass field to be installed over the blue turf at Albertsons Stadium, coincides with the Jaialdi celebration in Boise.
