by Bernie Lilavois

Ontario, California - The Ontario Fury, Driven by Mark Christopher Chevrolet, will host a second Major Arena Soccer League International Challenge event at 7:30 p.m. August 27, 2016 at Citizens Business Bank Arena featuring teams of MASL players representing the United States and Brazil.

The first ever MASL International Challenge at Citizens Business Bank Arena between the United States and Mexico drew more than 7,000 fans to the arena on June 27, 2016, the largest arena soccer crowd in the arena’s history. The upcoming exhibition will give the MASL’s top Brazilian players a chance to show off their skills against the U.S. team that won the first-ever Arena Soccer World Cup last year.

“The overwhelming response of the fans and the atmosphere we had for the first game was amazing, and we wanted to give our fans another opportunity to see the top players in action,” said Fury president Bernie Lilavois. “Many of the top players in our league are from Brazil, and we want to showcase their talents for the great fans in the Inland Empire.”

Rosters for the game will be announced in the coming days, with players representing teams from across the MASL expected to play. The Brazilian team advanced to the semifinals of the Arena Soccer World Cup before being eliminated by Mexico.

Tickets for the game, starting at $10, will go on sale Monday August 8th at 10 a.m. at the Citizens Business Bank Arena Box Office or online at Ticketmaster.com. Special group ticket packages are available through the Fury’s office by calling 909-457-0252.
