CARSON, Calif. (Friday, March 8, 2013) – Chivas USA announced today that it will play sister club Chivas Guadalajara in a friendly at Estadio Olimpico in Ciudad Juarez (Mexico) on Wednesday, March 20, beginning at 6 p.m. PT. The match will be played in benefit of EDUCARE, an education institute in Ciudad Juarez.

EDUCARE Ciudad Juarez builds hope for one of that city’s most marginalized and violence-stricken communities. For that, Chivas will participate in different activities with the goal of benefiting the institution. A significant percentage of the match´s proceeds will be put toward the second stage of EDUCARE Ciudad Juarez’s construction. After the first stage, the impact the institution has generated has been felt within its students and their families, by offering education as a better alternative for a violence-free future.

As part of its bye week in Liga MX competition due to FIFA competition, Chivas Guadalajara will also face Mexico’s Under-20 team, which was recently crowned 2013 CONCACAF champions and will represent Mexico in this year’s U-20 World Cup in Turkey.
