Soccer fans, unable to secure tickets for Toronto FC's friendly against Real Madrid, can at least watch world stars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka practise with their Spanish team.
Toronto FC announced today that Real Madrid will hold an open practice Aug. 6 at BMO Field.
Tickets are $15 and go on sale to the public on July 28 at 2 p.m. There will be a presale opportunity for season subscribers and for fans on the Gold and Red wait lists.
The special presale begins July 27.
Toronto FC plays Real Madrid Aug. 7, at BMO. Tickets for the game sold out two weeks ago.
"We are very excited to have Real Madrid train, and allow us to open the gates to our fans," senior director of business operations Paul Beirne said. "This is a great chance especially for the kids to come down, and see how Madrid runs their sessions. We're delighted people will get another chance to see them during their short stay in Toronto."
Gates will open at BMO Field at 6 p.m. with training slated to get underway at 7 p.m.
