CLEVELAND, Ohio – Tickets for the Cleveland Crunch’s inaugural exhibition game sold out in 48 minutes this month, a rep for the team said this week.
The Crunch will host the Brew City Legends FC of Milwaukee at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Soccer Sportsplex on Lorain Road in North Olmsted. Brew City plays in the Premier Arena Soccer League.
The team sold 150 tickets at $10 apiece. “We definitely did not expect tickets to sell out as fast as they did,” said Andriana R. Ruscitto, public relations coordinator for the Crunch.
The owners of the Crunch are seeking admission into the Major Arena Soccer League.
Tickets have not gone on sale yet for the next home exhibition match, 6 p.m. Saturday, March 27, against the Cincinnati Swerve.
Brunch with the Crunch, scheduled to take place this Saturday at TownHall in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, has been postponed due to Covid concerns. Refunds are being issued, and a new date for the event has not be scheduled.
