Tickets to this match will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, September 10th, and will be limited to just 1,000, in an effort to keep fans safe and socially distanced.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the United family together again in a safe and responsible way,” said New Mexico United President/CEO Peter Trevisani. “For a few hours next weekend, Weidner Field will become an extension of the Land of Enchantment, and we look forward to providing fans, players, and coaches with the home field experience they’ve been missing all season. To do that, we need your help in following COVID-safe guidelines, and working together as New Mexicans to keep each other safe and healthy.”
