Well, your wife/girlfriend/sister may now agree to go to a soccer game with you this summer.
But more importantly, you’ll get the opportunity to watch the best in the world in your hometown.
For the second summer in a row, Cristiano Ronaldo and Champions of La Liga, Real Madrid, will play a friendly at the Linc in South Philadelphia.
After playing a friendly against the Union there in 2011 in front of 50,000 fans, Real Madrid will go up against Scottish Premier League title holders Celtic on August 11, 2012 as part of the 2012 World Football Challenge.
Tickets go on sale on June 4th.
