A sea of players, fans, color and pride filled the National Sports Center Stadium at the 28th annual Schwan’s USA CUP, presented by PUMA’s Opening Ceremonies held Tuesday night. The sheer joy shared by all in attendance was proof enough that USA CUP is about more than just soccer.
At Schwan’s USA CUP Opening Ceremonies Tuesday night, media intern Madeline Greene tweeted live from the field throughout the evening. We decided to let you follow the event minute-by-minute, a fun way to document an awesome evening!
Punctuating a long day of soccer action at Schwan’s USA CUP, presented by PUMA, Minnesota Stars FC will face the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the fourth and final meeting between the two teams in the 2012 regular season at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at NSC Stadium. With two wins and a draw against the Strikers this season, the Stars have already claimed the season series, but Wednesday’s game has much bigger ramifications for Minnesota than going undefeated against last year’s other North American Soccer League finalist.
