Miller Park to host first pro soccer game

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers and Miller Park will host Chivas and Swansea City during the All-Star break in the first professional soccer match at the stadium.

The match scheduled for July 16 is part of the annual U.S. tour by the Mexican club C.D. Guadalajara, better known as Chivas, and the English Premier League club.

"We've very excited to be bringing yet another major attraction to Miller Park this summer as we host this match between Chivas and Swansea City," Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger said in a release. "We are fortunate to have a facility that is adaptable for much more than baseball, and with the World Cup being staged this summer, interest in soccer is peaking worldwide."

Tickets go on sale May 22 at 10 a.m. Ticket prices range from $25 to $70.
