On June 5, 2019, our favorite soccer team kicked off the U.S. #MexTour and 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament with a Friendly match against Venezuela at the Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. And if you were in the audience, we totally don’t envy you at all—not even a tiny bit!

Alright, alright, maybe we’re turning green with envy, but we’re good because this is the summer of red, white and green! The Mexico-Venezuela Friendly kicked off at 9 p.m. CST with reported sales of more than 68,000 tickets out of total venue capacity of 71,000! There are about 1,500 cities in Texas with populations less than 68,000—put that into perspective.

As the proud official beer sponsor of the Mexican National Team, Estrella Jalisco is especially excited about the iconic player lineup this year as well as new management by former Atlanta United FC coach, Gerardo Daniel “Tata” Martino. Let’s just say this summer will be a wild uproar of soccer madness with the MNT lineup comprised of iconic players like Guillermo "Memo" Ochoa, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Jonathan Dos Santos and many other soccer legends.

Every two years, the CONCACAF Gold Cup brings together the best soccer players from North America, Central America and the Caribbean. This year, Mexico, United States, Costa Rica, Panama, Trinidad/ Tobago, Haiti, Canada, Martinique, Curaçao, Bermuda and Cuba form League A.
