More than 13K tickets sold for U.S.-Scotland

CHICAGO Ė It's not a World Cup qualifier, but ticket sales are going at a brisk pace for the U.S.-Scotland international friendly at EverBank Field on May 26.

More than 13,000 tickets have been sold for the 8 p.m. ET encounter, which will serve as a World Cp qualifying warm-up for the United States prior to the June 8 WCQ vs. Antigua & Barbuda in Tampa.

More than 13,000 tickets have been sold for the U.S. Menís National Team game against Scotland in Jacksonville, Fla. The teams will face off at 8 p.m. ET on May 26 at EverBank Field.

The game against Scotland will be the first match for the U.S. in Jacksonville in more than a decade. On Feb. 6, 1999, the U.S. recorded one of the biggest upsets in their history, defeating defending European Champion Germany, 3-0.

This will be the first meeting with Scotland on American soil in almost 14 years, with the U.S. holding a 1-3-2 record in the series. The teams last met on American soil in the U.S.'s final preparation match before the 1998 World Cup, playing to a scoreless draw on May 30, 1998, in Washington, D.C.

The most recent match between the sides was a 1-1 tie in Glasgow on Nov. 12, 2005.

The U.S. will play Brazil and Canada before returning to Florida to take on Antigua.
