Chivas USA square off against Xoloitzcuintles of Tijuana

CARSON, Calif. (Tuesday, February 7, 2012) – Chivas USA will play Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles from Mexico’s First Division as part of their pre-season schedule on Wednesday, February 22, at 8:00 pm, in San Diego, CA, at University of San Diego’s Torero Stadium for the San Diego Clasico title.

This will be the first time the Goats face off against their neighbors from south of the border; for Xolos, whom currently hold the Clasico title after beating the Galaxy last year in a penalty shoot-out, this will be the second time they face an MLS team.
