World Cup Qualifier Viewing Party at the Petrillo Music Shell Tuesday June 18th

June 7th, 2013 · 1 Comment · chicago events

Here’s something different folks with a south view on E. Randolph St. will be able to see a week from Tuesday – a soccer party hosted by the U.S. Soccer Federation.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN and will be displayed on a roughly 20 by 33 foot screen at the Petrillo Band Shell. From our unit at the Parkshore, we have a southwest view framed by Outer Drive East and Harbor Point centered on Butler Field and the Petrillo Band Shell, and it’s something of a game for us to figure out what event is being set up or going on on any evening in the summer. I think a World Cup Qualifier Viewing Party will be a first.

The game starts at 8 p.m. and they will be playing against Honduras. I do remember a ton of Honduran soccer fans in Chicago a few years ago, it must have been a World Cup Qualifier game here in Chicago at Soldier Field?

In addition to the game at 8 p.m., there will be pre-event activities including pickup soccer games and a youth soccer clinic starting at 4 p.m., so if you’re looking for something to do with the kids that evening, that might be a nice change from hanging out in the Lakeshore East park or going to Mariano’s for ice cream.
