From a reader:
At 5PM on Tuesday, August 5, 2008 at Chelsea Waterside Park (23rd Street and 12th Avenue, across from Chelsea Piers), the most storied soccer club in history, FC Barcelona, will be playing in a 4-on-4 tournament to benefit Malaria No More.
This historic event will be free and open to the public and will last for approximately one hour. In their first U.S. appearance in over two years, the intimate environment will allow fans the potential to get autographs and photos with their favorite players.
Do not miss this opportunity to sit inches away from finest players in the world; Mexican national team captain, Rafael Márquez; 2008 UEFA Euro 2008 MVP, Xavi Hernandez; and of course the indisputably world-renowned, Thierry Henry. Featuring three players from the Spanish Euro 2008 championship team, this event offers the once in a lifetime opportunity to rub shoulders with the most decorated club in the sport.
We encourage people to get out early so they can:
1) Get prime seats to see the stars of FC Barcelona in action, up-close and personal and hopefully get an autograph or picture with their favorite player
2) Get some of the exciting prizes we will be giving away from 3:00 PM to 4:45 (FC Barcelona jerseys, soccer balls, tickets to the game, t-shirts, etc.)
