When the U.S. Men's National Team comes to Colorado next month for its first home World Cup Qualifier of the Hexagonal, they'll be coming with fans from all across the country, according to long-time soccer journalists Allen Hopkins, formerly of ESPN and Fox Soccer.

The USMNT's match against Costa Rica on March 22 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park sold out within an hour of the public on-sale after the majority of the tickets were scooped in a presales to Colorado Rapids season ticket holders, U.S. Soccer Supporter Club members, and Visa cardholders.

The U.S. dropped its opening match of the final round of Qualifying to Honduras by a score of 2-1 on February 6, making the Costa Rica match 'crucial,' according to midfielder Michael Bradley. The match in Colorado comes four days before the U.S. heads south to face Mexico at the famed Estadio Azteca.
